Thanks, I'm leaning towards an attitude problem, we've checked off all the pains we could think of, We learned he had sensitive and semi flat feet, the farrier helped us out and gave him gel padded shoes. He's been floated, we checked his tack fit, changed his bit (he rides much better with the regular snaffle as opposed to his old more sever hanging snaffle.) He doesn't show signs of discomfort just tension, and he wasn't that tense tonight when he spooked he was riding quite smoothly (getting more attentative by the door but riding collected and smooth and into the corners each time) I had changed to his "better" direction (we call it his better direction because he's much less tense, rides way smoother, and it over all more willing to work at the end with the doors.) And trotted around the ring several times, doing large circles by the door when out of the blew the wind hit the door and he bolted. I'm not angry at him or anything and I wish I had gotten back on but I thought I had broken my wrist(thank god it's just a sprain) and I'm praying I can ride him again tomorrow. He was perfect till the spook, which I'm not upset at him for, he didn't throw me on purpose he was afraid, but I wish he would get used to the elements and not react so harshly.
