One thing I do on young or green horses is, I'll ride them to the middle of the riding area (warm up pen, round pen, areana, whatever.) and just make them stand as the other horses trot and lope around us. On my 5yr old gelding I've been working a lot on him not being so flighty. A few weeks ago my daughter was loping a new horse that was blowing out of ccw circles, said horse blew out and ran towards me n my gelding. My gelding just lifted his head and let the sqeek by in front of him. Never offered to move once, so what I'm doing seems to work. For me anyways. Side note, horse daughter was on had loosened a front shoe and that's what caused him to blow outta his circles. He's barfoot now.
