Are eggbutts and/or D are approved for dressage?

Per one person I talked to last week only the loose ring is the dressage bit (I'm not talking about super-complex bits here :) , just the basic ones).

So can something like this Mikmar Cupreon Eggbutt Snaffle Bit with Ergom Lozenge - Dover Saddlery. be used for dressage?

I was pretty sure most top level dressage riders rode in double bridles?

Other than that, I have no idea, I don't show, I just ride like I do, lol.

In Canada these are the legal snaffle bits, there are also regulations on the diameter of the bit. If you live somewhere else, just check the rule book (so for US - check the USDF site)


ETA: Another rule is that the mouthpiece of the bit can only be one type of metal. Because the bit you posted only has different metal on the rings, it would be legal in Canada.

Yes you can use both of those bits. A loose ring is the perfered bit that many dressage riders use, but not the end all and be all.

JDI - Racing snaffle is another term for a generic D-ring. It should read Racing Snaffle (D-ring) or Racing Snaffle/D-ring. If it were to read Racing D-ring, then yes you would be correct.

Gotcha, thank you - I would have thought that very odd otherwise!
