Question Nosebands in Dressage

Now I've looked through the rule book several times but I can't remember if it mentions this or not. But:

Do you have to have a noseband to compete in recognized Dressage shows?

Thank you in advance.

Yes, but you have the option of a plain or flash noseband.

You can use the cavesson, flash, drop or crank noseband.

^ I did not know you could use a drop noseband. Learn something new every day!

"2. For Training, First and Second Level tests and FEI Pony tests, a plain snaffle bridle is required with either a regular cavesson, a dropped noseband, a flash noseband (a combination of a cavesson noseband and a dropped noseband attachment) or a crossed noseband. Except for the FEI Pony tests, a crescent noseband is also permitted at these levels. Except for the crescent noseband, buckles and a small disk of sheepskin, which may be used in the intersection of the two leather straps of a crossed noseband, the noseband must be made entirely of leather or leather-like material. A padded noseband is allowed. Tests same as (2) above, or a simple double bridle (bridoon (snaffle) and bit (curb) and curb chain, lip strap and rubber or leather cover for curb chain optional, cavesson noseband only)."

Maybe it is getting lost in translation but what on earth is a crescent noseband?

Must be one of those "local usage things"

Never seen them before. I knew of or have used every other noseband on that page (figure 8 is known as a grackle here) but have never heard of or seen a crescent noseband.

Page 6 of the link I posted have pics of different ones. Personally I've never seen one used, but I guess they are.
