Color: Buckskin/Dun

Type of Riding: No riding yet. He hasn't been broken to the saddle yet. Just groundwork so far!

My Horse's Achievements: Trusting humans enough, letting his feet be picked up, halter trained, the basics. He's also learned to "smile" (flemn), and pick things up with his mouth on command, I taught him that ;)

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Peppermints! He also loves butterscotch and carrots....he pretty fat, so he doesn't get a lot!!! He can get fat just by looking at the grass, oy.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: He LOVES his muzzle played with!!! He's super super smart and LOVES to play, so naturally he finds things to get himself into trouble with!

Pet Peeves: He hates to be told who's boss, when it's not him :) He doesn't particularly like rain either...runs for shelter as soon as it starts to even mist :P

My Horse's motto: Come on! Don't be angry with me...I'm too cute!!

How We Met

Sadly, I am not his owner. Not yet at least. I plan on buying him, but it might be a while before I can. My trainer also says he and I need more training to be "compatible", lol! But I spend lots of time with him training him, playing with him, grooming him, loving on him, and just watching him or taking pictures of him. He has ton of personality and that's what I really love about him and why I hope to buy him one day. I LOVE this pony!!!! The way I met him, is my trainer leases the barn from the guy that owns him and keeps him on the property with her horses and the boarder's horses.

Note: He IS a Spanish Mustang off the range, though the current owner(s) do not know why he does not have the BLM brand on his neck, even though he has "papers" saying he's a purebred Spanish Mustang. .....These pictures are NOT fake! See more of him below, with some of my sisters in the pictures :P

12-01-13: Thank-you SOOOOO much for HOTD!!! Outlaw will love all of the treats and lovin' :)

Hey Outlaw!
There's been a lot going on at the barn lately! Yesterday, the barn owner told me to start working with a horse named Marla. Marla is a bit of a brat, especially from getting away with all that she has. Her owner is a little girl in 3rd or 4th grade who doesn't do much with her. Marla has become pushy and somewhat disobedient so I am going to be working with her to correct her behavior. She's been doing mostly walking, and the occasional trot. Today, I took her out and did some ground work. When she realized she couldn't push me she was listening very well. Then I lunged her, and walk/trot was excellent. The canter, however, could not even be called a canter. As soon as she did, she sprang up in bucks and rears... Let's just say she'll be fun when I start riding her next week.
Anyway, Marla and Rosie are in the same pen. As soon as I opened the gate to let Marla in, Rosie pinned her ears at her and got very upset. I finally got Rosie clear of the gate and let Marla in.. And then Rosie chased after Marla. Jealousy problems much Rosie? I put Marla's halter away and got Rosie's and as soon as I walked back into the pen Rosie walked right up to me. I was like "Aww Rose, you just want me all to yourself don't you?" She's such a sweetheart.
Well it has been a fabulous day!
Hope yours was too!
Left a vote & lots of love!

Cisco
Thank you all!!!! I will never know everything Cisco has been through, and I don't want to know. All I know for sure is his tongue had nearly been severed in half, probably either from a really harsh bit or having his head tied around, and his R eye socket fractured (again, don't wanna know). Steve said he's pretty sure at some point someone attempted to train Cisco to buck, to this day he WILL NOT tolerate a flank cinch. I believe that Cisco was loved and treated well early on, then things just went south for him. I'm also sure he's been through mutiple sales, with his striking looks and proud manner always finding a buyer that's sure he would be the one to "fix" him. I remember Steve telling me at one point that Cisco wasn't only PTSD, but MPD (multiple personality disorder) and probably Bi-polar to boot. One thing everyone has remarked on wherever we go, is how Cisco watches for me. Whenever I am in sight, his eyes follow me. It's an awesome feeling to have that kind of connetion with a horse. Eventually, I think Cisco would have been on one of those one-way trips to Canada or Mexico, instead we plan on continuing our adventures...

REALLY APPRECIATE ALL THE SUPPORT, THANKS! Steve and Amanda returned to Texas last summer,and Cali, Mystic and Cinco went home to their new training facility. I have been out for a few lessons, and a clinic they did in November. Cisco did well, and was voted by the clinic participants the easiest horse to do groundwork with (he had us switch and do some groundwork with each other's horses). Joe, my farrier stopped in to watch for a while, and when he was out next he told me that while he knew I had been riding and doing clinics with Cisco, he couldn't believe how calm he was. He remembered watching Steve work with him in the "early days"

AND RIDING...
THANKS FOR ALL THE VOTES. Rest of our trail ride was uneventful, except for the heat(high 90's) and for one rider who started to get heat stroke. Christy was able to get hold of her husband (cell service iffy there) and he drove out and picked her up, and her horse was also ponied back. We went through some pretty steep ravines and overgrown trails (to shorten the distance, we cut through on a hiking trail). When we got back, I was so glad to get OUT of the saddle. I think Cisco was just as glad to have me out of the saddle! We had been out over 9 hours. I stayed over that Sunday night at the B&B, and Cisco and I got a good night's rest before heading home. I had put in 38 hours in the saddle in 5 days, and Cisco had to have his cinch taken up 2 notches by the end!

We Keep Riding...
REALLY APPRECIATE ALL THE SUPPORT, THANKS! We had a great, if slightly late, lunch on the trail. As we were starting back, Christy (owner of the B&B), realized she had misjudged the trail and we were still 3-4 hours out. At this point, 2 people opted out and left when the lunch truck went back (one horse was ponied, the other ridden back by Trevor's wife). I decided to hang in there. Everyone wanted to trot to get back sooner, and the 2 horses ahead of us hit out in a long trot. Cisco decided to really move out and catch them, and I realized I was too tired to post. When I pulled him up, it was rodeo time! He got in 4-5 bucks (he was REALLY mad), before I was able to yield his hindquarters and settle him down. Trevor commented "I thought you liked to dance!" (Earlier, I had been moving his hindquarters back & forth in a kind of rumba). Replied "Dancing is one thing, jitterbugging is something else".

THE LONG RIDE...
THANKS, EVERYONE! Was supposed to go on a moonlight ride, but I was getting pretty tired, so passed on the ride that night (we had been spending 8 hours in the saddle every day). The last day, Sunday, we were to do 4-5 hour trail ride, with a lunch break out on the trail. Cisco handled everything beautifully, EXCEPT for the wooden bridge over a ravine. He walked up to it like he was going over, then simply planted his feet (4 feet in concrete!) and refused to budge. It took the clinician a half hour, and then Cisco walked across calmly. I had offered to dismount, but was told no, he needed to learn to go over whatever I asked him to. (That was the only thing he tried to refuse the whole 5 days)

Jumping & Swimming
The fourth day, we went out to the jump course, and worked on that for a while. I had never liked jumping Cisco, he would launch himself like he was jumping 5' over a 1' obstacle, but after working for a couple of hours, including having to meet oncoming riders over the jumps, he was doing so well; jumping just enough to clear the obstacle. We did a short trail ride, then broke for lunch (there was a 4 hr break each day to avoid the heat). That afternoon, we all took the horses for a swim in the tank (pond). Several of us had been taking the horses down to cool off in the water during the afternoons. I needed a little help getting on him bareback, and was pretty wobbly at first but Cisco actually moved to stay under me. Walked out in the water till it got deep, and then we were swimming. Cisco loved it, he groaned the entire time he was swimming like he does when having a good roll. That was only my 2nd time on him bareback, and the first time I had ever been on a swimming horse. Passed on the moonlight ride that night, too tired.

COWS!
THANKS SO MUCH! Quickly learned that Cisco was fine with being ridden twice a day, he was always waiting for me at the gate to his paddock, it was like "Are we going to have more fun? What are we going to do next?" Next day, we started cow work after warming up. The 20 or so cows were brought in the arena, and we just rode around letting the horses get used to them, as some of them had never been around cows before. Then we learned how to "boil" the herd (get them in close together and milling), then we individually walked our horses thru and parted the herd. After that, we actually started cutting! Cisco was amazing, he locked on to whichever cow I picked out and stayed with it. That was thrilling. The 3rd day, we trailed the herd out to pasture in the morning, and did some more cutting, then trailed them back to the arena. Went back out in the evening, trailed them out to pasture, and worked cattle until the full moon came out, then continued working till nearly 10PM. Brought the cattle back in, and called it a night. Cisco LOVED it.

A BIG Step
Cannot believe how much support we are getting, thanks! Our next BIG step was a 5 day Parelli Horse Camp last June. I wasn't sure I could ride that much, but decided to go anyway. The first day was spent mostly on ground work and arena work, making sure everyone could sidepass, back at least 10 steps, and do rollbacks, and walk, trot and canter quietly. We also played some games, notably trying to keep another horse and ride from reaching the opposite side of the arena. It rained that afternoon, so we learned some knot tying before going back out to ride that evening. I was nervous when I found out that we would be riding twice daily, wasn't sure how Cisco would feel about that. We would ride in the morning, take a break in the heat of the day, then go out after an early supper and ride till dark or after (full moon week).

No More Bucking!
THANKS FOR YOUR VOTES & SUPPORT!!! The Chiropractor pretty much adjusted everything, and said that the horse had been in pain for quite a while. Really made me feel badly - at least some of training problems I'm sure were related to him being in pain. He had also started bucking when asked to canter, this has resolved. And also, while he had gotten pretty good about his feet, he always really fussed about his L hind being done. He has been much better, even my farrier has remarked on what a change it has made. Cisco will usually now lift a hoof as soon as you bend down. The Chiropractor also pointed out that Cisco's R eye orbit had been fractured - and when you really look at him head on, his R eye is sunken a bit.

A Job Offer
THANKS, EVERYONE!!! Early last spring, we went to a clinic put on by the head trainer/farrier of a large metropoliton mounted police force (Houston). It was an ART Clinic: Attention, Respect,Trust. Did a lot of groundwork and obstacles in the mornings (including firecrackers while mounted) and then trail rode in the afternoons. At the end of the clinic, he asked if Cisco was for sale. When I told him no, he said that if I ever wanted to sell him or couldn't take care of him, would I please contact him, that Cisco would make a good police horse. I remarked that Cisco was too short and colored, and he replied "If I say he's tall enough, he's tall enough, and we are an equal opportunity employer". He also strongly suggested that I have Cisco seen by a chiropractor, which I did and it really has helped him.

I try flying!
THANKS FOR YOUR VOTES & SUPPORT!!! In February of last year, Cisco became very nervous when I was riding in the pasture. There was a lot going on in the neighbor's pasture, it was very windy, and it was almost the last straw when Cinco decided to come see us. I shooed him away, then went to the south side of the pasture to ride. Cisco spooked at something and spun, and I didn't. Hate that feeling of waiting for the ground to come up. Lay there for a few seconds, wondering what was broke. Nothing seemed to hurt, so I got up, caught Cisco, and remounted (he was a little nervous - wondered if I was going to do that flying trick again, LOL). Rode for another half hour or so. When I removed my helmet (which I didn't always wear) I discovered it was nearly cracked in two. Now I never ride without one.

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.

We work things out
THANKS FOR YOUR VOTES & SUPPORT!!! Began feeling really sorry for Mystic by himself, so tried putting him with Cali and Cinco. Again, everything was fine for a few days, then Mystic went after Cinco and put him through a fence. (The horse just can't jump as high as he thinks he can, and the geldings just don't like the poor boy!). As a last resort, I put Cinco in my obstacle course area (200x200) and left the gate to one of the side pens open so he would have a shed to go in. Began letting him out in the big pasture during the day and bringing him at night. Cisco would still chase him, but it gradually lost some intensity. On a few occasions, I even caught Cinco "teasing" Cisco into chasing him. Cinco became very good at following me out to the pasture in the morning and coming in when called in the evening.

Cisco the Demon Horse
Please leave a blog when you vote, thanks! The plan for Cali and Cinco was to just turn them out with my 3 in the big pasture (35 acres). Unfortunately, as a lot of plans go, this fell through. It worked for few days, then one morning I went out to feed and Cali & Cinco were in the neighbor's pasture. Found where they had gone thru the fence, we got that fixed, brought them home, then watched in horror as Cisco went after Cinco and put him through the fence again. Cisco honestly looked like a demon chasing Cinco (Cisco's 15.1, Cinco is around 17hh). Finally got them separated, and put Cali and Cinco in the 5 acre pasture by themselves.

My herd Doubles
THANKS! Shortly after this, Steve and his wife decided to move back to California to help with the family business, and train on the side there. Unfortunately, they had 5 horses, and could only take 2. I offered to take Mystic, and wound up with Mystic, Cali, and Cinco. Steve had a hormone level run on Mystic (he had always acted studdy, and the mares were crazy about him when they were in heat), and it came back very high. Seems the BLM missed a testicle. It took 3 surgeries to finally locate it and remove it. (he had actually had had one previous surgery, the vet pointed out) I guess they just didn't care that he was a crypt instead of a gelding. Luckily, I had one pen that does not have a common fence with either of my pastures, so that's where Mystic lived until he was finally a gelding. Cisco also started bucking when asked to canter, so we pretty much quit cantering.
