Does anyone have any tips for training an eventer?

Does anyone have any tips for training an eventer?
Is he/she brand new in eventing? When I started training my first horse who had no experience with the sport, she was very level headed so I just got on her and poped over a few fences, but if your horse is very spooky, then definitely lunge him in the area that you are going to be schooling cross country on him. I might lunge him over a few fences before you hop on.
Just give your horse lots of breaks whan he is first starting.
Have fun!
