Getting Back Onto Horses

My friend wanted me to post this for him:
This was the first time my friend rode a 17hh horse and he fell off because he started to pig root and go nuts. He is now a bit worried to get on any horse now, he really wants to but he just can't.
What are some things we can do to make him trust horses again?

Find a quiet been there done that horse, put them both on the end of the lunge line and let him get comfortable. Then proceed from there. Teach him a one rein stop, and give him some tools he can use if he feels like he is in a bind.

Recommend that he take lessons from a well respected trainer who has nice, quiet schoolies.
