Cisco had a serious accident during 2003. He took a nasty fall and broke one of his legs. Fortunately, our horse doctor knew how to make him feel as good as new. He's pictured here with a fresh coat of paint.
Cisco is our only Mirror horse. This means that he is carved in detail in his trapping on both sides. These inside carvings could be seen in the mirrors at the center of the carousel. (At least they could be seen if there weren't other carousel figures in the way!)
He is carved in stargazer style, which means that he's looking to the sky. He heads up the only row that isn't symmetric to the row on the opposite side of the carousel.
A limited edition miniature carousel reproduction (by Jerry Reinhardt) is
available through the
Riverfront Park gift shop!
