My mare, Blue was always trained in a full cheek, and that's what I ride her in. I ride happy mouth full cheek for flat work, and I use a slow twist full cheek when doing alot of jumping courses, becuase she is a very handsy horse, she is duler to the legs, because when I was training with my bad trainer, she would have me ride more with my hands. ><. I'm trying to fix that now though.
With Geof, whom I event regularly, he uses a loose ring french link for all three, he responds to the lightest tug on his mouth, so we use that and he loves it. He did wear a 3 ring elevator for Training and up XC, but the reins were just on the top and bottem rings.
