My eight year old quarter horse (Koby) is the sweetest guy ever. His only flaw is that he is very spooky. If I am riding him and someone makes a loud noise he will spring forward completely panicked and stop (only once has he completely taken off). Or even the other day I was grooming him and my boots bumped together and made a strange noise and it scared him. He is also herd bound. I love him to death and I don't want him to be scared of everything because that doesn't seem like a very fun way to live. I would also like to go on trail rides with him and parades but I feel like it would be way too traumatic. Is anyone in the same boat as me or have any tips to get him to relax? Thanks!
