Abstract: The forcing relation on $n$-modal cycles is studied. If $\alpha $ is an $n$-modal cycle then the $n$-modal cycles with block structure that force $\alpha $ form a $2^n$-horseshoe above $\alpha $. If $n$-modal $\beta $ forces $\alpha $, and $\beta $ does not have a block structure over $\alpha $, then $\beta $ forces a $2$-horseshoe of simple extensions of $\alpha $.
