Yes momentum is higher and because higher damage output. But when you are riding a horse it is much-much-much-much-much harder to throw javelins because 1. horse will not stand still. 2. if while moving this is even harder. Try to shoot precisely from a car when you are moving through forest without road. And it is from current gunpowder weapons, not throwing javelin which has its own weight between 1.5-3 kilogramms.
And because they must either have lower range and 100% to damage target or higher range and a chance to miss. For 4 tiles 20-30% chance. If 5 then 50%.
I tried once ride a horse. It is really hard.
