My Arabian was a lot like this when I got him (retired racehorse, not eventer), and he is most relaxed when I just ride him bareback. We vary our routine from day to day, so he is not as tense with anticipation of what we will do (because he doesn’t know what that might be). I don’t know how safe it might be for you to try this, but it works for us.

It is never the horse's fault
