While there are many sets of Napoleonic figures on the market very few have mounted officers (apart from cavalry). This is because such a figure plus horse takes up room on the sprue and generally only one such pose would be required per box.  Therefore, most sets limit themselves to junior officers on foot.  Yet most senior officers were almost always to be found mounted.  In part, this is simply because a gentlemen would expect to be mounted rather than on foot like the common soldiery, so it was to a large extent a mark of their social as well as military status.  However, it also had the practical benefits of allowing them a potentially better view of the events around them and allowing them to move more quickly, while also making it easier for the men to see them.
