I think we've told you enough that it is a training problem and you need to go back and train him right.

I'm trying hard to understand your logic here. What made you think a tie-down would stop him from passing up the first barrel? Was he high-headed and not listening, which is why he passed it up, or was there some other reason? Tie-downs used for this purpose are being used INCORRECTLY. If your horse has these problems, you need to go back to the absolute basics and work up without using gadgets. Tie-downs are to help finished horses brace in their turns, not to pull the head down.

Good lord....this is why uneducated, arrogant kids should NOT be trying to train barrel horses.

I am walking away before I REALLY say what is on my mind!

I've been told to put a tie-down on my young mare because she is looking for something to balance on.
It might be true, but there is a lot of training I have yet to do with her, so her balance problem may go away with time. So, am I going to slap I tie down on her cause it might make her run better now? Heck no.

If you know SOOO much why in the hell did you come on and ask in the first place? If I threw a TD on a horse who had a "issue" I would no have the talented horses I have today.

It is called training, which your "training" consists of growing a TD on to "fix" the issue....ya that sounds like a great way to get a awesome horse with holes in the actual training, blowing barrels, diving, big bits...but that's ok because all tha matters is the Pros and other people use it....

Instead of acting like you know everything and raving about your decision....listen to yourself. Because you sound very immature and self centered.

Grow up!

Lol using a tie down to fix that? It's like putting a harsher bit in a horses mouth because 'they won't listen' because the rider is constantly hanging in his mouth, eventually you'll run out of quick fixes and that's when you get hurt
