Tie Down

Does your horse throw his head when you ride? Well if you dont have one already you should get a tie down.

The tie down blocks a horse from throwing his head high in the air. When a horses head is raised in the air it can be difficult to keep him under control.

To put a tie down on you stick the horses nose through the nose band and over his ears (see picture above). Then you take the long rope and put it throw the circle ring on the breast plate.

After the rope is through, you put the rope between the horses legs and clip it onto the girth/cinch.(see pictures below)
