Bits & Nosebands

What bit and noseband do you use for Cross Country? Is a twist allowed? How about twisted wire?
Thanks!!

Pretty sure ANY bit is allowed. A slow twist snaffle is definitely ok! Ans Really not that harsh of a bit. A double twisted is allowed too but I would never use one on my horse!!
My horse goes in a happy mouth eggbutt snaffle for all 3 phases.

Im yet to see anyone use those bits in any form of riding I know htey are not allowed here for eventing so look uo your local rules to see as if its in pony club or riding club there are bit restrictions.

Twisted bits are allowed in the XC phase to my knowledge. But NOT in dressage.

I currently use a KK training french link snaffle for all three phases and a regular flash noseband. However, I have used a figure eight on a strong horse.

With my ex eventer ozzie I used a slotted cheek joint kimberwick and a cavesson noseband.

With marco he is going to be in a Jp korsteel full cheek snaffle with a cavesson. If he's strong then something else LOL haven't taken him out yet so he should be ok in that. He listens to me and pulls up easy :)

I use just a plain ol' cavesson. No flash, no figure 8. I also use a basic French Link Egg Butt Snaffle.

Well you can stick pretty much anything in their mouth for xc.
