You need to explain your situation. Every warrior in this game can die. How do you usually play? What kind of armies do you usually build? How many points?

Riders of Rohan (in SBG) are not easy to kill with bowfire, and in combat they do well against most enemies except Uruk-hai, elites, and monsters. Try using their throwing spears to your advantage using a hit-and-run tactic. Field heroes and call heroic moves in order to keep up the momentum of your charges.

I usually fights against uruk-hai's. I put them in fight as fast as i can. I'm trying to take them out before they can surrond me. Because my bows are almost useless against them. But soon i maybe gonna fight against orcs or dwarfs.

He's probably beating you because Uruks have a higher fight value. Because Cavalry have bigger bases, your riders can be trapped easily, and you are easily outnumbered. Use throwing spears to harass the Uruks - stay just out of range. It will force him to split his force up, and then you charge. Use your further movement to your advantage by having some riders circle around and engage his pike men so that he can't benefit from pike support. Then make sure you have a hero near by and call a heroic move if you lose priority the next turn.

As soon as they game starts CHARGE as much as possible!!!!!!
on the charge you will have and extra attack and always buy throwing spears as they don't hinder your movement
also make sure you have a small warband of warriors of rohan with bows to provide a bit of support for them
