Yes, I´m aware of that, bu I think that AH and Columbia editions are quite different in rules, in number of blocks, etc... and I don´t know if that change would change the game too much... what do you think?

Hola Juan, After many years I am playing back again this nice game and I am also fixing some house rules myself :-)
I have seen yours and I like your proposal about defending cavalry, it makes sense to me what you said , no shock bonus for them. I am going to apply that !!!
I read some other variant proposal for cavalry where they can fire at F1 after moving one space (in same turn). If they move 2 spaces then they can not fire.
However concerning artillery I think that its too heavy to eliminate the artillery on the second round automatically. I would rather give the attacker a fire F3 against artillery when engaged and when they dont have support of infantry or cavalry.
I believe the rule about cavalry receiving F3 even when engaged by another unit represents counter-charging. Cavalry was not given to standing their ground if charged, so it makes sense that cavalry gets F3 on the first round of combat after engaging or being engaged.
