Actually, yes, the bit can do tremendous harm. It is a leverage bit where the curb can put tremendous pressure on the jaw bone, as well as the bars of the horse's mouth. Remember, even a little pain from a small tug on the bit can cause panic. That panic can lead the horse into all out struggle. Horses are seriously hurt that way.
Remember, whenever a photo is posted, you may have to learn a lesson you didn't expect. Take it in, learn, and move on.
Back to the question, I would guess a QH cross, too. It may even have a little TB mixed in.
