Argh. I tend to often have a big problem with not getting any horses near by. This causes a big problem as I often love to beeline for cavalry. I noticed horses in general tend to be in very limited supply, and even when the AI has them to spare, they almost NEVER want to trade them out, even after converting religion, etc. Though ONE time I was able to get some from Napoleon after paying rediculous fees and sucking up to him all game. Anyone ran into some sort of tricks for trading them besides the norm?
