For barrels I agree but I was under the impressions these problems are on the trail. BarrelracingArabian you have worked with your horse to the piont where you still need certain tools during certain activities but you don't have to rely on them always. But some people will not put in the work as you have and will use their tools always. Specialy if her horse doenst respond well to the tie down, even if she were to get him comfortable with it, if he spooked or freaked out on the trail he could flip over and really hurt her or others riding with her.
If she gets hims comfortable with it during barrels, he is in such work mode the probability of injury to horse and rider is lower.
Don't breed, buy. Don't buy, adopt.
