Try some of John Lyons' techniques. Take a broom handle, take the broom off of it, and attach a glove to it so it looks somewhat like an arm and a hand. Then, with your horse on a lead line (I like using rope halters when training) start with rubbing the "hand and arm" over your horse's shoulders, down his legs, around his feet, etc. Then put a plastic bag on the hand and get him accustomed to it that way. Go about it the same way: rub the bag on him lightly, over his shoulders, on the ground in front of him, etc.
