Tirailleurs in support of cavalry

Greetings. I was wondering if any one could help me with details of tirailleurs fighting in support of light cavalry, in the early Revolutionary war period; the idea being that the cavalry advanced at the trot with tirailleurs jogging behind them at the pas de course, the infantry effectively providing firepower for cavalry who were short of firearms of their own for use in skirmishing and outpost work.

I am sure I read this but now I would like to to look into it further, I can't find the note of where I found it.

Thanks JF
