Most polearms come with a swing and thrust damage number, but while on horseback, the default attack seems to be only thrust. How do I swing a polearm while on horseback?

    It's probably not allowed, at least if the horse gets any say in the matter. Commented Sep 20, 2011 at 20:45

  • Can you use any other two-handed weapons in two-handed fashion while on a horse? Having ridden a horse a time or two in my youth, I don't know that the logistic required of two-handed attacks from a horse would be very effective and/or comfortable. Commented Oct 14, 2011 at 15:32

It seems that most polearms in the game do not support a swing attack while mounted. The only such pole arms that allow for 2 handed swings are the hafted blades and their variants. These are the same weapons that the Khergit lancers sometimes use, which is how I noticed their uniqueness.
