Thank you Dan Schorr for this information, which is not easy to find.

Small addition to Dan's information's - The Boarspear was not only used by the Saxons but also by the Electorate of Brandenburg (Prussia) for the same reasons - give the Foot Soldiers some protection against Cavalry by building Chevaux de Fris after removing the Pikes.
I believe that the Bavarians did the same from 1686, after they gave up the pike.
