Correct fitting of a tie down?

Could someone give me a run down of how to correctly fit a tiedown? My mare has always been ridden in one and I've never used one before.

I'd like to know:
Where exactly the noseband is supposed to sit and the length the tie down should be.

Photos of correct AND incorrect would be helpful as well.


Challenge me, Dare me, or even defy me. But do NOT underestimate me...
For on the back of my horse nothing is impossible!

Why does she always wear a tie down?

IMO if she's always had one for just general riding, there are training issues there and you need to ditch the tie down and work on those issues.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Endiku - I agree but I don't want to make major changes in her training until I have her paid off. Should something go wrong and they take her bak or I have to return her she should be the same horse they've known.

Equiniphile - thank you!
