Dismounted Dragoons

Has anyone experimented with a house rule for these?

I've played dismounted dragoons as either trained regular infantry or (less often) as irregular infantry depending on the scenario. I'm not sure a house rule is required unless you want to start them mounted, which I never have.

The question came up in my group as we play a couple different systems with our SYW figures and the French, Russian, Prussian players (not sure about our Brit) all have dismounted Dragoons.

Interesting as in the other systems they can either form a unit or be used as Skirmishers (similar to how you used them Cae5ar)

I guess the only issue would be if they start mounted you would need to declare how they were purchased (Regular or Irregular). Treat dismounting as a Formation change?
