Thank you :)
And that's bad. Because it makes unit identification rather difficult :D But it seems that lances wheren't coloured in battle but the pennants where individual? This at least makes painting easier :) But ok that is an interpretation from one single picture.

So ideas:

Household Cavalry = individually painted lances and pennants
Enlisted Lancers = brown/red lances and individual pennants

Comitatus Cavalry = brown/red lances mostly but some painted ones too and individual pennants
Gate Cavalry = brown/red lances, uniforms for each banner (= 2 bases) with uniform pennants.

For Székely I guess only the infantry was famous for their red uniforms? If for cavalry also then as Comitatus and Gate Cavalry but with red uniforms mostly.
