```Technically, two figures aren't supposed to occupy the same hex. But you could certainly house-rule it as a "joust-only" rule. I was trying to figure out how to make jousts work using the combat rules as written (in a way, trying to see if the combat rules were broken) which is why I went with the zig-zag thing. I totally understand the aesthetic wankiness caused by a zig-zagging barrier.

You could also choose a more liberal interpretation of "directly in front" to simply mean anywhere in the front facing of both steed and horseman. I think that argument could be made because "directly" is never actually defined in the rules (at least not to my knowledge). I just personally prefer the more restrictive interpretation.
