Yea I could see it being possible with archers and light calvary, but even then, getting knocked over by a horse sucks, but it doesn't kill you like an arrow to the face or a stab to the torso. At most charges should disrupt your ranks and allow for better melee infiltration, not annihilate your forces like someone just lit up an equestrian air strike. Calvary is best for hit and run tactics against archers and quick support to a failing line.
