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.
