What do you mean by 'fairly'?
Any fun shows, Walking Horse sanction shows, Rescue League sponsor shows, etc. Anything except shows that specifically want trotting horses, and even then some are leniant (sp?).
As for the bit, anything you feel like using.
The usual is just the standard TWH bit that is both Western and English, but really, it dosen't really matter.
Sanction shows may have stricter rules on that.... But fun shows don't care at all. They see a TWH as any horse. You gait when they trot, and flat walk when they walk (or at least that's what I've done. You don't always have to necessarily flat walk).
Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.
