| || | Tie downs
I have a 9 year old barrel horse named Vegas, he is a very high spirited barrel horse. We have problems with head tossing, and pulling of bit. Even with some training techinics my father gave me he still keeps it up. I cannot put a tie down on him to help him learn for 2 reasons. I avoid tie downs, they can slow you down not giving your horse his head in a race (which is just my opinion) and 2 he broke his nose when he was younger on some panels in a round pen being stupid, So anything that goes across his nose he hates due to the break. I have had a few people suggest martigales but I only use those for head set and training younger horses. Any suggestions?
