About Cisco Kid

Cisco Kid was found wandering estray in Nueces County. He was then placed with BEHS by the county.  He was adopted and then returned in December 2012.

History

Cisco Kid appears to have had no handling before coming to BEHS.

Health / Lameness

He has no known health problems.  He has limited vision in one eye, but he has adjusted. He does best with a fly mask in the summer, otherwise he tends to get puffy eyes. 

In the summer of 2015, he was diagnosed with Fibrotic Myopathy in one back leg.  This is likely caused by old scar tissue and results in a ‘hitch’ in his step.  The veterinarian says he is sound for riding but will always have a little hitch in his step.

Evaluation and Training

Cisco Kid wasn’t handled much before coming to BEHS, so he’s leery of new people. He’s also blind in one eye and can be a little spooky on that side.  He went to a trainer for two months in the spring of 2013 who taught him ground manners and started him under saddle. 

Cisco Kid went to training with Hilary LoBue in mid-October 2015.  She says he has stood fine to be saddled and bridled.  They rode in the arena at a walk, trot, and canter and went out on a few trail rides. She said he did spook once, but it was a very mild jump and he went right back to work.  His current foster home is riding him at a walk, trot, and canter and says he’s doing well.  She says he’s a sweet horse that someone will really enjoy.

Cisco Kid is currently being ridden by a novice rider at his foster home.  They’re taking western riding lessons together and doing some trail ride - and Cisco Kid is doing great so far!  He ought to make someone a nice trail and pleasure horse.
