Clearly, this is the Holy Grail of all the castle sets. I'm glad that TLG still uses this set as a Basis Model for new sets, such 7946 and 70404. This set influenced many generations ahead, thats why it marked a before and after in the Lego Castle storyline.
The wide colour selection on plumes, torsos, saddles, horses and legs bring to this set that 'infinite build" feeling, allowing to the kid to make more permutations with the pieces. Nowadays is possible but a bit morecomplicated because the present lines manages a defined colour theme for the good guys and the bad guys.
