I ride a hancock breed gelding EXTREMELY Hyper was almost sent to slaughter being called crazy I got him from my boyfriend and when he gets hot he throws his head but I don't use a tie down on him because he may head toss but he doesnt get out of control may look like he is to other people but he is very much in my control So I think you really shouldnt need a tie down just more training

To the people I sometimes ride with, tie downs are the first resort, not the last. My horse was sold to me with the strong recommendation to always ride him with a (rather tight) tie down.

Guess what? He doesn't need a tie down.

A lot of people use tie downs out on the trail. I've been in groups where I was literally the only one without one.
