He is absolutely fine with me putting things over his back/withers in the stable. It is when we try to do it in the school that he has the issue.
I am not willing to push him too far as I don't want to loose his trust. I do have a more experianced person helping me and even she is at a loss as to why he has a phobia of it in the school. We have now got to the point where we can get the line over his withers if we have a person standing either side of his head (just standing near him, not doing anything else), he seems to take confidence from this. He will walk on with it over his withers If you walk next to his head, but when you take a step away from him he panics and explodes.
He will be a ridden horse, not a driving horse but I intend for him to be a top class show horse, I've got all the time in the world
