What kind of...

What kind of Chin/Curb Strap does everybody use? Just a random question that popped in my head lol.

On my running bits I use chain chin straps. On my everyday bridles I am switching out my chain ones for ones like these that I have made with the paracord stuff...



I made one mainly for Zoey because she is so light and then decided to make some more for my everyday bridles. But on JJs I have a leather curb strap for his everyday.

So what do you guys use? And any reason for it?

I like the paracord idea! Then if you're ever in a bind out on a trail ride and need some rope/cord, you're all set!
Horsealot and Critter sitter like this.

I use chain for the racing bits and snaffles get a plain leather curb strap. Atleast right now since I'm using my trainers horse and bridles.

I think the paracord is a cool idea, I have a leather one that seems to be doing the trick

The one I use now has hay twine for the curb strap! It works, so why not? I also have a few with chain straps.

I prefer to use leather. I will put a chain on if I have a really strong horse, which I will be doing with Selena soon I think, but mainly leather. I have some decorative ones that don't really do well with curbs engagement wise that I use on snaffles.

I do like the paracord, I just never did it myself before. Lol I might like to though, for color purposes.

I have chain curbs. About every bit I use comes with a chain curb, it's what I've always used.

I use all chain curbs for racing. For trail riding or training I use the leather ones with the small double chains in the middle. They aren't as harsh and work good enough still! I never thought about making a paracord one! BTW where did you get that paracord at?!? I LOVE the color of it!
