Via Elricaltovilla, for myself, WeaselGuy!
When youíre small, all the world wants to step on you. It doesnít take long to learn that the best way to defend yourself is to be where no one expects. By leveraging the momentum of their mountís swift speed, and the natural litheness inherent in a smaller frame, Nimble chargers learn to turn their disadvantages into powerful weapons against the biggest of foes.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: The Nimble Charger gains proficiency with the lance if they do not already possess it. Nimble Chargers gain no new armor proficiencies.
Nimble Lance (Ex): With careful placement and finesse, the Nimble Charger sets his lance against a much larger foe and delivers a blow with as much force as any other creature. When mounted, you may use your Dexterity modifier in place of your Strength Modifier for attack and damage rolls with lances. You add 1.5x your Dexterity modifier to damage rolls if you are using your lance two handed.
Steed (Ex): Your levels in Nimble Charger stack with levels in classes that grant a mount or animal companion for purposes of determining the strength of your animal companion.
Fleet Charge (Ex): Starting at 2nd level, whenever the Nimble Charger makes a charge attack, he increases the distance of his charge by 10 ft. This increases to 20 ft. at 4th level.
Dancing Charge (Ex): At 3rd level, the nimble chargerís skill with his mount is such that there are few possible impediments to stopping his charge. When you make a mounted charge, you may ignore difficult terrain and you can make one turn of up to 90 degrees during your charge.
Pounce (Ex): At 5th level, the Nimble Charger and his mount gain the Pounce special ability. If the Nimble Charger makes a charge attack, he and his mount may each make a full attack at the end of the charge. In addition, if the nimble charger is using the Ride By Attack feat, he may choose to make some of his iterative attacks against any creatures he rides by as part of his attack, instead of against the final target of his charge. These attacks still count towards the Nimble Chargerís maximum number of attacks, but the Nimble Charger may choose which of his iteratives he is using on each attack.
