The modern Overcheck is often a necessary piece of safety equipment for certain types of harness and is an aid to the driver in keeping a horse's head properly positioned.
An overcheck has a practical purpose: if a horse lowers its head to far when in harness, particularly if moving quickly, it can catch the bridle on the shafts of the carriage or wagon , risking an accident.
