Mounted Combat Weapons

The list of weapons suited for mounted combat on page 270 of the Player’s book doesn’t list broad/long sword. I was just curious as to the reasoning for this. Not looking to argue, just curious. I understand that the roman long sword, the spatha, was specifically used by cavalry because of its longer reach than the gladius. Also curious as to the inclusion of the short scimitar, unless that would be considered the equivalent of a saber.
