If you're a great swordsman and a mediocre rider. On horseback you're a mediocre swordsman.

Your skill of fighting on horseback is limited to your horsemanship.

The bow legged nomad will triumph.

I suppose it makes sense that a literal lifetime of Steppe horsemanship should be inherently superior to bajutsu.

The samurai would be dead long before he can reach the mongol.
