the area against which the pet pulls the burden. In general, buggy/drive neckbands are more sophisticated than working neckbands, although they perform exactly the same functions and must match very well to minimise the amount of work the pet has to do to tow the work.
Stroller collars are made of traditional leathers, although there are some models in Europe with either wooden or fabric. These types of collars are usually available in full face or half-shell form. It is often used with a decorative "top" or a top for presentation. Multifunctional collars are engineered for flexibility.
It is slightly broader at the draw (the measure around one side of the neck at the broadest point) than a stroller neck and generally slightly thinner through. There is a all-purpose neck in full face or half-Sweeny or full-Sweeny form, according to the manufacturer. Box (or work) neck are constructed more heavily than all-purpose neck.

Extremely strong and tight collar can be produced "without choke", i.e. there is little filling at the neck to allow an unlimited respiratory tract when the head is put down. Necklaces are available with buckles, belt buckles or lever buckles for one-handed use.
Necklaces and working neckbands are often available with 3 " steps, i.e. 16,17,22,22,,, 23,24".

Handcrafted necklaces for loggers or pullers are still available with long straws.

It is your task to make a line through the middle of the animal's throat. On the other hand, the entire inside of the collars is measured. Normally the padsize is about 2? bigger than the necksize.
You can use a shroud gauge or make your own mould from two joiner square (L-shaped rulers) or L-shaped carton cut-outs. Wrap over the long sides of both straightedges or cut-outs to form something like a C or a collared side. Put the meter on the pet as if it were a side of the necklace.
Position it exactly where you want the necklace to be on the pet at the withers and under the respiratory tract. This will be your throat. From the front, look at your horse's throat. They can form the pet's throat and choose the (SWEENY or throat) form for the cuff.
