Thanks for the advice, he is on a calming suppliment, as suggested by the vet and by the trainer. I think that it is helping a little.
I say anxious and not buddy sour because there are times when I'm working him and there are other horses around, specifically his field mates, and he still is tense. He has had a couple of homes where he was treated poorly, which I don't feel I need to go into detail about, but I do beieve they add to his anxiety issues. They also caused him to be a little head shy, but we are working on his issues with that. We will just keep on with the same for a while, and I know with a little more time we will get through this too! He's getting worked twice a day right now, once by the trainer and then once, much lighter, by me... Which seems to calm him down too. Thanks for the tips! I really like this guy, just want him to settle in and be the self-assured boy he was when he was younger!
