Patience definitely helps! I also find it useful to wear back protection when I'm on a green horse. Sort of like an eventing vest. Ground works is key. The most important thing is to always end on a good note.
I recently got a green horse lol. Make sure you have your horses attention because they haven't seen everything yet and if they do see something they don't know they can spook. Also be patient with them too
My horse if very green and hot! Patience and experience is important. I lunge my horse before every time I ride. I also make sure if he gets scared keep his legs moving the longer they focus on the thing that's scaring them the worse it gets. I hope this works and also bonding time works to I did a lot with my horse and he trusts me rlly well now! I hope this works for you!
