Well, the biggest thing to do is find a way to make your horse relax. Spend time with him, not in a rush, just brushing him and scratching him. Get to know where he likes to be scratched etc.
My mares both LOVE to have their bellies scratched. One loves to have, what I call her 'caves' scratched....the underneath, insides of her thighs. She will pick her leg up like a dog and stretch her neck out, with her lips quivering and drooling...lol.
Little by little you can introduce touch to that area and get him used to it. As he trusts you and relaxes...he may drop on his own. Some don't. But as long as you get him out of the freaking out stage and trying to kick, you will actually be able to reach your arm up inside of the sheath and help him drop. I like to use ky jelly.....you don't have to worry if you don't get him rinsed out so there is no irritation for him. If you put a fist full up inside his sheath and let it sit for a few minutes, it will loosen up the smegma really well.
