Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions to help a horse that's nervous about being shoed? My farrier is being great but my horse gets really worked up and worried.

Thanks!
Start to associate his feet being worked on with good things, mess with his feet, give him a treat and pet him when he stands still, continue until he associates standing still and his feet being worked on with good things, hope this helps!
