I don't know whether or not they'll fit, but I see that Bicorne sell horses in packs of 4 for £12.00. Given that Bicorne figures, like Redoubt, are on the large side, there must be a chance that Redoubt riders will fit on Bicorne horses.

Give me five minutes and I will be able to tell you for sure. I have unpainted and unassembled cavalry of each.
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

Ah rats. Well it turned out  I have assembled all the Bicorne ones on their own horses and all the Redoubt on their own horses some time back and had forgotten. The fact that I didn't mix and match is telling me that perhaps there was some problem between horses and riders but I can't exactly remember which way around.
All my loose horses and riders are now only Redoubt so I cannot test. The riders seem to look very similar in terms of the space between the legs and the horses are the same width. So I seem to remember the problem was the saddle. I can tell you that the Bicorne horses are a bit slimmer legged and graceful looking, but the height and head size match exactly.
I would say it's worth buying a pack of Bicorne horses and giving it a go. Sorry I could not be of more help.

Iíve mixed and matched Renegade and Bicorne riders and mounts.

See the images about Ĺ way down page 38 of my ECW thread:

Iím afraid I donít have any experience of Redoubt.
