    Uhlans (and Light Horse) have wide double breasted buttons like your photo above.

    Hussars look like circus lion tamers

    Dragoons are tricky... unless you get one ON his horse, they usually look like artillerymen! :banger:

    Maybe this time - one for all times !!How do I recognize from the uniform if it is a Dragoner, a Husar, an Ulan, or whatever was sitting on horsebacks ?

    I never get them right. Thanks in advance Robert

    Robert, why not just read Kaiser's Bunker Guide to Imperial German Uniforms 1842 - 1918 and you learn and then know the differences. I use it almost every day. if you look at the site, you will learn that your photo shows a guy with the plastron front like an uhlan, but he has swedish cuffs so he can only be chevalager. here is the link http://www.kaisersbunker.com/gtp/
