What is the best way to keep horses that get spooky at noises calm?

You should try some ear plugs!
Well you could try desensitising him/her with music while you tack up and groom, rubbing things like plastic bags and any other things you think scare him over his body to show it’s not a threat.
Hope this helps 🌹
