Doesn't seem all that ill-fated to me :I. I guess retreating back behind those stakes will be difficult if they get counter-charged but...

Not when they meet up against a ton of pikemen and arrows on all sides.

But um...I don't think there's evidence of the Ottomans ever deploying pikemen. They relied almost entirely on light infantry.

The momentum of the heavy cavalry charge can do that. :P
