This unit is an English longbowman that can ride a horse. He works like a trebuchet: to mount/dismount the horse, click the Pack icon in the control panel (or hit hotkey: P). While on foot, the longbowman attacks with his bow. On horseback, he fights with a sword. You can build him at the British castle, in the Imperial Age.
A few notes:
The longbowman is a hero unit, so he heals automatically, and he can't be converted.
You can garrison him in a transport ship or a siege ram, but not a building.
He gains +1 range (in both modes) when you research Seige Engineers.
Since he is based on the trebuchet, he will not auto-attack enemy units. You will need to right-click on enemies explicitly to make him attack.
To use this mod, you must have the Conquerors expansion pack with the 1.0c patch. Installation instructions are in the readme file.
The new Mounted Longbowman is a very nice utility . I especially liked the way how the horse follows you and you can mount every time you want without triggering .
This saves from a lot of triggers , cloak units and renaming . It's very useable for RPG and cut-scenes . You're a nice data editor . Keep up with good job !

I think it would be better if the longbowman turned into a Calvary Archer insted of a Scout.
