Spooking - Spook and Spin

Some horses spook-and-spin because it is FUN.  They are rambunctious by
nature, they're not tired, and you are not providing adequate trail
entertainment.  With practice they improve unless you take some action that
convinces them that spinning is unpleasant.

The trick is to differentiate real fear from boredom-induced drama.  It
would be wrong to punish them if they are afraid.  If this was easy to
determine then there would be no need for pricey horse-training seminars and
