Why my horse is nervous when I do fast movements ?

Why my horse is nervous when I do fast movements ?
Sometimes when u work horses to hard to go fast and whip them when they don't do what u want they can get very nervous and when u ask it to go fast it could be nervous that it will get hit for not doing what was expected of it not saying u abuse your horse but maybe the owner before did or u are hard on your horse without realizing it
Instincts or maybe a bad past experience. Sometimes mares in heat can be a bit sensitive too.
