Mask part of an element

Is there a way to mask or keep the part of the front and back horses behind the middle horse from burning? It shows faintly in the main horse.

I would do a small outward offset on the center horse then change the offset to a different color. Hide the center horse. Group the black horses together, select the group and shift select the offset shape. Go to Tools>Cut shapes and then delete the parts behind the center horse and turn that layer back on.

Thanks! I’ll give that a try. Your instructions seem clear and concise!
