The text on the page above the one where that diagram is states

Any bit combining any
Mouthpiece pictured in Figure 1A with any cheekpiece pictured in Figure 1A is permitted.
Which means that bit is indeed legal. It's the same exact bit I am using for my horse, my trainer would eventually like to see her in a loose ring but she was either gaping or grabbing the loose ring bit and yanking so she switched her to the eggbutt which she absolutely loves, it was like getting a whole new horse.

That is JUST what's happening to me in the loose ring, WHOOPPEEE does this mean I may get my nice calm horse who can work softly on the bit back?? It may not all be 'riders show nerves?" I'm so happy I could cry, off to find the written confirmation, do you have a link, I just googled the pics of dressage legal bits...getting really excited here.

Page 21 and page 22. Page 22 has the pictures of the bits, page 21 has the text about using any pictured cheekpiece with any pictured mouthpiece.

CARP, got excited to early, we ride under Equine Canada Rules, and in their rule book it is only the bits pictured that you can use as far as I can see, back to the drawing board.

I can't cut and paste the relevant section, so I'm still looking for the next best bit for her, I can't afford the money or the time to get her happy, we have a festival this weekend, so I can't go buy all of the bits and try her in them one by one until she goes sweetly.

This wouldn't be the first time an accredited judge didn't know ALL the bits that are allowed. Oh and BTW if you wanted just a quick yes or no a senior STEWARD is actually a better source.

But that being said it is ALWAYS ALWAYS best to go to the source of the information you need...and that is the rule book and if you have any question then go to the appropriate division within the CEF.

Since this is revived and I am the OP, I just wanted to let everyone know that I have since moved my horse to a different barn (had a few lessons at new barn and my mare was so well behaved) and so my mare doesn't have any more spookiness issues, hence no need for a bit to help me 'stay in control' of a runaway mare - which is kinda what was going on - we weren't really doing much dressage at that point.

So new barn is awesome, my mare is now in a HS RS Dynamic eggbutt snaffle and might move to a loose ring version soon. We can actually canter at this new barn without it being scary and my mare is so calm and relaxed. A friend from the old barn came to watch us ride at the new one and she couldn't believe it was the same horse.

I guess my original question was a little less about dressage (even though I ended up showing in a snaffle and scoring 56 in IntroA at my first show - but had to switch back to the kimberwicke the next week - was still at old barn) and more about being safe on an unpredictably spooky horse who shouldn't be at age 20 with lots of eventing experience.

Either way, all is well now, thanks.

This was copied from another forum, I hope this helps. As far as I know, no bits with curbs are allowed at training levels of dressage.

Well I kind of sorted my issue out, I invested in a flash noseband, and she rode better in it, and my gelding is going really well, he swept the board in his last show.

I'm going to try a myler bit when money allows
