The Buxton Under Check is otherwise referred to as a martingale. The under check is designed for those horses who have a tendency to throw their heads up. When properly fitted, an under check will prevent the horse from getting his head higher than a normal position, rather than forcing him to carry it lower. This model is a regular “standing martingale”, designed specifically for use with Buxton Breastplates.
The under check clips to the centre ring of the breastplate, at the horses chest, at one end and to the centre ring of the head halter (or noseband) at the other end.
