Horse won't stop 'jiggin'

Hey guys, don't know if I am supposed to do this but in the Trail Riding section is a young lady with a horse that basically doesn't know how to walk. It sounds like whoever broke and trained this horse forgot to teach it how to think and how to stop. I have offered some advice but there are way more knowledgable and experienced horse people here than myself. Just wondering if anyone wants to pop over to the Trail Riding section and offer some help with a Jiggy horse?

The main thing with a jiggy horse is that the horse is scared/nervous/unconfident and the jigging is really the horse's emotions running away. The horse needs to be taken back to basics and needs to understand the power of riding on loose reins. The worst thing the rider can do is hold the horse back, that only makes the horse more claustrophobic.
