The standard is unknown; I have used one for the Lusitania Dragoons, modified to replace the badge with a gold F VII monogram on a green field, almost certainly incorrect, but it works! I painted over the black cravat of the "Dragoons of Death" for the actual unit.

Granaderos a Caballo de Fernando VII
It was a volunteer unit raised September 8, 1808, by Count Fernan Nunez, with three squadrons and 540 men total.
It was converted into Hussars on May 1, 1811 (one of 4 Hussar units remaining at that time). They are then shown wearing a similar uniform, but with yellow breaches, and a green pelisse with black fur, laced white.
The unit continued past the end of the Napoleonics Wars as the Husares de Fernando VII, but was eventually disbanded in 1825.
Some sources show the borders of the shabraque in yellow instead of white, and some show the plate on the colpack to be brass as opposed to silver. In either case the plaque bore a F-VII monogram. I have gone with the more standard interpretation.
The trumpeter's uniform is somewhat speculative, but follows the usual pattern for Spanish Cavalry - red coats with facings as per the regiment. Yellow faced green would be the main other option for the trumpeter's uniform.
