It took my horse a while to settle in and not be nervous anymore. Same with my daughter's horse. I would give it a solid 3 months before you'll see your horse's "real" behavior. Anything before that could be settling-in issues. Others will disagree with this, probably many with lots more experience than me, but this has been my experience.
“When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes. ” ~ William Shakespeare
