Taffy has a point that if they are too tight, I would rather see none than one....however, it is part of the harness and I have side checks on my draft harness...I use them but they are loose, as I don't interfere with their natural head set and the way they carry it. The shows I have been at, it was part of the harness, so required to be there.
Do you have any driving experience at all? Do you have someone who does who can mentor you? What are they teaching in the 4-H class about driving? Before you drive and/or show, PLEASE get lessons and work with someone who knows what they are doing. I would never suggest anyone show if they have no clue.
