I'm going on a trail ride in a couple of weeks with some friends but I'm a bit scared that my horse might buck or bolt, because whenever I take him in a new paddock he starts jigging and bucking or if he sees something in the distance he pricks his ears up snorts and spins in circles I usually just keep riding or get off and calm him down it works for awhile then he just starts up again
. So I'm just wondering how to quickly calm him down on the trail without anyone getting hurt?
And if any one has any ideas for getting him ready for the trail ride
I'm doing some ground work with him and it seems to be working.
