You just said this, and now you're saying he sometimes
The reason I'm confused is because you're all over the place with your comments.
First, he's been abused and nobody can get near him, then he's a sweetie and you've ridden him safely, and now you're saying that he really still is spooky and untrusting.
Seriously, whether you've had this horse 3 days or 3 months, he really does
need a professional trainer to turn him around, not your 'friend who does NH'.
Sweet or not, this horse has issues that you and your friend shouldn't be trying to tackle. He needs to go to someone who's been working with horses a very long time, and has a proven record of success.
