For Uma, it depends on the level of training she is at. Sometimes, she chooses to be a hard head (usually when just getting back into work) and gets a 3 ring elevator on the second ring. But when she is really into work, she goes fine in a french link O ring. In dressage, it's always a french link O ring

Demi- French link O ring for dressage and a Nathe for XC and Stadium

Ginisee (when she competed)- D ring snaffle in all three

Scooby in dressage - fixed french link snaffle, he loves it. XC + SJ - dutch gag on the main and last holes. We're still working on the whole "you slow down when I tell you to" thing. lol

Eventing, the sport where you strap your medical information to your arm.

I compete at BN and Novice level with my Thoroughbred and I've seen all sorts of bits. Some horses can go all three phases in a simple snaffle, which is Great! I think its awesome.

My horse goes in a KK Ultra frenchlink in dressage, and in the jumping phases he uses a kimberwick (we're looking to change this) but some horses go in three different bits.

When I still had my boy, I rode him in a loose-ring french link for all 3 phases.
When I competed my trainer's cold, he had a D-ring snaffle for dressage, a Kimberwick on the first slot for SJ, & the Kimberwick on either slot, depending on how he'd been behaving that day, for CC.

That was several years ago though, I miss competing so much!
