I know how you feel my horse does a drop.... take off... buck. When he gets spooked, I would definitely say take a step back, get on and walk him til he is quiet relaxed and swinging in his step... those ears flopping to the side. And remember to breath and keep your self relaxed... I know when i'm not relaxed my horse feels it and finds something to spook at. And then move up into the trot and if he spooks don't react by shouting at him. Just carry on or go back to the walk and start over. But the best thing is to get back in that saddle.
Good luck I will be thinking of you
If horses could talk, what would they say?
