Yes, on both counts

She wants the hart to be "salient" or "springing", two
hooves on the ground and the other two in front of it,
with the wings spread in a "striking"-type posture. 
The rider and lance, she wants almost parallel to the
base.  She specifically said "lance," by which I
believe she means a jousting-type lance.

The only tinctures are the argent field and the vert
charge(s).  If the hart, rider, and lance are all
conjoined in silhouette-ish, does that count as one
charge, or three?
The client, however, is not particular about the exact
position of the rider/mount, as long as it has a
female chivalric fighter w/lance riding a winged stag.
