I actually find the best thing to do is to not make a big deal out the area your horse is spooking at. Don’t tense up and try not to react when he does spook and just ask to move
Hi Mia
I just keep near the area the horse is scaring at and let them take a look the I get them to move towards the object that is scaring them and everytime they get closer I take of the pressure and give praise also just working normally in the arena and ignoring the horse spooking can work too!
Hope this helps
