    I personally only have used a GM on horses that get a little too light on the forehand, as GMs tend to force the horse on the forehand. So I have used them on problem horses who want to rear. If I feel them get light, I bring them down while forcing them forward. For training a barrel horse, I wouldn't use a GM. You want a barrel horse using his hind end, not his front

    I see what you mean, thank you for the input!

    Now I don't use a tie down on this particular horse, but if he begins throwing his head or hopping his front end up in the future around the barrel; would you suggest using a tie down or a martingale to help that problem? My mare did this before I gave her time off, now I don't know how she is.

    If he started throwing his head up, I would use the GM for one or two training sessions. The next time ride without it. Let him fight himself, but you don't want to have to rely on it. Most horses don't need a tie down, they are just used to replace training.
