Just keep trying will take some time but once you get the hang of it,it is easy.
Important: Make sure you line up the arm, not the horseshoe

Some great solutions. Just thought I would add that it took me four games to get this achievement, so with roughly 11-20 throws to win a game (without any Ringer bonuses), that means it took about 40-50 attempts to finally get one. Annoyingly, though, I managed to get two Ringers in a row when the achievement finally popped.

I found that I got closest, and eventually got the Ringer, when the green bar was between the middle and top lines shown next to the bar (preferably just after the middle line, hitting it seems to put you short of it).
