Do you have any tips on sound desensitization? I have an off the track thoroughbred scared of loud noises because it reminds him of the starting bell

Whenever you put to him take something loud like a plastic bag or play noises of your phone this will help him get use to loud noises, (I recommend doing this at feeding time or in a safe place as it will comfort your horse)
Use a plastic bag
