Yep, basically. You should know your horse better than we do, so if you honestly think he's spooking, look on the internet for some desensitizing excersises you can do. But you think he's playing around with you, you have to push him forward every time he spooks. Just act like nothings going on and cue him forward.
^^Excellent point made also! I have been a victim of this. Have someone else ride him, and if he still has the problem, then I'd say check his eyes or push him through. If he doesn't, maybe take a break from riding him, do some ground work and build back your confidence in him as a mount.
