My horse is a spaz!

So I have a baby - 5 year old Dutch Warmblood x TB and he is very good overall, especially in the saddle.

I have recently moved him to a new barn, and it's been about a month and he still hasn't quite settled in. I have taken him to many places for him being so young, but he can never seem to settle down. I know that he is young, and I get told a lot that he will calm down as he gets older, but I've seen many other young horses not so spooky when taken places. What are some ways I can help him adjust/calm him down?

He loves to like... spook himself. He will spook at something that has been there and that he has seen before or something silly like me making a sudden movement or talking to him excitedly. It gets pretty annoying because he will spook himself and then be fine after 5-10 seconds.

Do you think it could be a trust issue?

Any advice?

baby, spaz, spooky, trust, young
