Feelings of panic may occur as a result of sudden, abrupt movements, loud noises such as a gun shot or fire crackers, abuse, neglect or injury.
Calming a horse by speaking softly and gently to calm and soothe him is the best approach. Use a lead rope or halter to capture the horse. If the animal was tied to a pole or post before running away, he may have dragged the object with him and you would therefore need to disentangle it from him.Most times, the horse will continue running in order to get the object away, but in the process may also injure himself— which in turn will only make him panic more. Enlisting the help of a number of people to form a chain around the horse is often the easiest way to capture the horse.
