Breed: Paso Fino
Cinna came to Safe Harbor with Spartacus. He had been dumped in a rural area, and we have no knowledge of his history, or where he actually came from. Cinna was extremely fearful of people, and is a brilliant horse. When being rounded up to come to rescue he actually climbed up and over the panels of the catch panel and then jumped a 5 foot fence. We enlisted the help of a roper to actually get Cinna onto the trailer and into the rescue.
Fast forward 30 days--in rehab with our trainer, and Cinna is now a sweet and actually comical little guy. Every so often he has flashbacks to whatever caused his fear issues, but that is getting more and more rare. Cinna is currently being trained under saddle, and is able to carry a rider at a walk and trot, He knows how to lunge, allows his feet to be handled and can be touched and brushed all over. He is motivated almost equally by curiousity and food, which is very advantageous to his training.
This lovely boy has a bright future ahead of him, and will become an excellent companion to the right home.
