This word traces back to Latin caballārius, meaning “horseback rider” or “groom.” The English Puritans used it disdainfully to describe the royalist followers of Charles I, who sported longish hair and swords. Maybe that’s why I envision the tossing of long hair and a non-vocal “harumph” whenever I hear the word!

THE RDP for Sunday is


Let the word lead you to a creation you can post here. Use words, pictures, drawings or anything that inspires you to use this word. Then post it with the tags “RDP”, “Ragtag Daily Prompt”, and “Cavalier”. Set a pingback or copy and paste here. Either way, others will see you creation!

And don’t forget to come back and read what others have posted. That is most of the fun!

See you next Sunday!
