I have had a couple of horses like this and both had 'back problems. Could be something to do with that.

I would also put a crupper on him and hang all sorts from the strap so it is all behind his girth area. Basically sacking him out with what he is afraid of.
he has absolutly no issues at all with Rugs, leg straps, back straps, badages, rollers etc. You cannot panic him on the ground only when there is a rider onboard, so putting him in a stable with a rug on is not going to do anything, he wears rugs in his stable every night.
I have sacked him out so much on the floor that I'm fairly sure a bomb going off behind him would only warrent an ear flick, certainly a bird scarer gooing off 10ft from him no longer warrents even a lifting of his head from the grass.
i'm asking for ideas on how to do the same with someone in the saddle without putting the rider at risk

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
