Thanks for the advice. The ground work works well, and the arena works well also. I did my first trail ride on Friday and was pretty good. He is a claim horse just is a little spooky I do think it is part me and him he is out of practice from not being ridden and me not riding for so many years I am getting better with him and he is with me.

You guys probably already know this but just because he is an Arabian, doesn't mean that that is the source for him being jumpy. He could be spooking at the new environment around him. Mabye he saw a racoon or a barrel that he never seen before. I worked with a horse once that wen't absolutely crazy when ever he saw a bag of bedding... And it took me weeks of reinforcement to get him to understand that that bag of bedding was not going to kill him. So if I were you, I would look at what is around him train him to understand that it is ok and that you are his safe place. But thats just my opinion.
