    Does anyone remember a show in the 70s or 80s-it was a cartoon and it had horses that had armor and the riders of the horses had matching armor? Think they were like yellow horse with red armor, blue horse with green armor and the riders were matching colors to the horses...I know its not much to go off of. I can't remember what the name of it was, but they referenced it in a Cleveland Show episode and I remembered the cartoon but not the name and it's driving me crazy! Please tell me someone remembers it...

      Might they have had holograms on their chest?

        Possibly, I'm not really sure of any other details besides what I've said.

            Can you find a video online of this portion of the Cleveland Show episode? Or at least the episode title/number/air date? Seeing what you're talking about might jog some other memories too.

                After some looking around, I didn't find any pictures of the Visionaries on horseback and it’s been so long I don't remember if they actually had any horses. I think anyone who has ever seen this show would not have forgotten about the giant holograms on their chests, that was their biggest gimmick.

                On another note, in elementary school I once traded a notepad and kit Kat bar for one Visionaries action figure. The kid was older than me; I couldn't believe he wanted to make that trade.

                  you did indeed win that trade by a mile. I also do not remember them having horses but the colored armour made me think of them when i read the OP

                    Visionairies didn't have horses.
                    Perhaps it was king arthur & the knights of justice?

                      I think I've at least found the Cleveland episode
                      Season 4 episode 20
                      Of Lice and Men


                      Junior and Rollo briefly imagine themselves
                      space warriors, riding through space on
                      either armored or fully robotic horses.

                      It looked like a combination of several
                      80's cartoon elements.
                      SilverHawks
                      Saber Riders
                      Saint Seiya
                      Galaxy Rangers

                      Just a side note...
                      reminds me of this 2012 cartoon short I found once
                      Very retro 80's style .Although obviously cg, not
                      ol' fashion pen & ink. Seems to combine
                      Silver Hawks, a bit of Filmations style (maybe
                      at their best as in Starchaser: the Leganf of Orin)
                      A touch of ThunderCats)
