shaggy, are you getting nervous when you are leading the horse near there because the horse can sense that and will get worked up.
My hubby works for a construction company, he has brought all kinds of backhoes, front end loaders, etc. here and my horses don't even bother about it.....to me it sounds like your horse needs some desensitizing and learn to trust you and you need some confidence also.
During the summer I let all the horses out in my yard, it has helped with desensitizing them to all kind of things and then when we do go out riding they don't get so worked up about something unusual to them.
My horses are the joy in my life.....
