Cisco walks thru Fire!
(Well, actually, it was more a hop over) THANKS!!! In the fall, I heard about a good clinic by 4Shepherds (Dallas mounted police), and decided to take Cisco. He was pretty nervous at first, even after groundwork, but once we got in the arena he started listening. They had us ride stirrup to stirrup in pairs, and Cisco jigged and pranced and atually did a piaffe before finally settling down. We did some fun stuff with flags, then played "leapfrog". Cisco was fine at the trot when leaving the other horses, but when I asked for a canter he BUCKED! They had some really neat obstacles, including a mattress. Cisco was so excited when they brought out the obstacles, it was something he was comfortable with. There was also really large flag, a tarp to unfold and fold while mounted. The only thing he fussed about was crossing the line of fire (real fire), but he finally went across. The clinicians said afterwards that they would never have believed after seeing how nervous he was at first that he would be so good with the scary obstacles.
