So the warhammer is the historical version, a one handed weapon that can quite easily be used on horseback, while a maul is a two handed weapon that would be impossible, or at least very nearly impossible, to wield from horseback, as it is basically a sledgehammer.
I remeber for example Meribald, I think or the Elder Brother, saying that at the Battle of the Trident he was most concenred with finding a new horse when the old died because he couldn't afford a new one and he couldn't be a knight without a horse.
