OK "He is nervous around horses." That is when someone does not know about horses
and is scared or unsure...

"Dangerous behind the wheel" is when someone is just a wild driver, or maybe
drives while drinking...

"Even-keeled" Well, some people are even-keeled, right? You can't rock their boat
no matter how hard you try. (they're stable, steady, solid...)

(The keel is that "fin" under a boat that keeps it going straight.")
