Which do you think is a better build?

It just aesthetically rankles me to ask a guy to go out and routinely use a weapon for which he's not strong enough. As a commander, I'd go with requiring ST 13. It'll be easier for him mounting and dismounting, lugging gear around the camp, etc. etc.

As a player character, I can *easily* see a young knight or squire moving up to lance well before he's really ST:13; wanting to fill his father's shoes, or whatever.

So either answer is acceptable, depending on the situation, IMHO.
