Travelling knights

Afternoon, I'm new here. Did a fair bit of 15C re-enactment in the 90s and now regularly fight my 7 year old with plastic swords, plus regular views of the UTube stuff.

My question is this - on the films, Game of Thrones etc. groups of knights gallop from one end of the country to the other in full plate mail, maybe visors down too. Good dramatic spectacle but what would they travel in for real?

I'd guess a knight would have a squire, couple of spare horses, a mule for gear(?) and travel in a brigandine or something?
