    All these other solutions are good but here is a visual aid. All Credit goes to Jack and Geoff over at achievement hunter.
    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

    Shadow XBLJust a note, I got a ringer and it didn't count. My opponent had gotten one before me and won with it - somehow the game just skipped over mine and he won after I was done.

    LeoPereraRLST8Hi all, is this glitched? I've got a "ringer" several times but no achievement? Does the horseshoe have to be touching the spike?

    Just thought I'd put in my two cents because this took me longer than it should have.

    Definitely go during the day behind your first house on the MacFarlane ranch, it's easiest. The bets shouldn't matter, but it's good to have the pressure off. Take your time to feel out the practice shots to save yourself time later. Aim with LT first and LINE UP THE ARM, not the horseshoe. The horseshoe will follow the path of the arm. Then take the time to build your momentum. The meter should be green when you release, not red. Bring your arm all the way back with the RS and forward, pulling RT right on the white line. You need to be pretty spot on here. If the wind is in your favor, you have yourself a ringer. (If not, re-aim for each shot and be sure to rub more luck into your horseshoe.)

    Okay so after watching the few videos on Youtube and reading over all these, I would still rage when trying to get this achievement. The way I finally got it was a little odd, but did the trick.

    When you are holding LT to line up a shot, hold the RS all the way up and then when you let go of LT drag the RS all the way back down and then back up to the middle to make your release, this way the meter should be a solid green instead of some lukewarm green/yellow colour. This is what proved the most effective for me, and finally landed me the achieveable.
