A petite ordonnance, i.e. officialising the often irregular units of light cavalry, setting minimum armour requirements and proscribing a specific kind of horse, like the Irish Hobby, allows all light cavalry units to be more efficient in battle (+2 attack) and to be better protected against archery fire (+2 pierce armour). A special breed of horse furthermore allows for better movement.
Available to: All (but Friesland, Helvetia, Wales)
Cost: 800 Food, 400 Florins
This section lists civs that can make the best of Petite Ordonnance. Note that this may not be the best weapons training tech for that civ, but the civ can still make very good use of it, especially if combined with a certain policy decision (as recommended).
