I see it all the time, but to be honest, it depends on the horse and the training.
I have a 27 year old mare that's been showing in Arizona, Washignton, New York... Literally, this mare has been everywhere and seen everything. She is the spookiest horse I own. LOL
I have a five year old that's never been off my property (well, tell a lie, she just left to my sister's for a year, but that's it) and you couldn't spook that mare if you took a rifle and fired it over her head. But she's always been that way, and I imagine she probably always will be.
You get some spooky, some flightly, some good, some bad in all breeds - Arabs just tend to have the worst rep for it.
