The bit looks like a curb to me. Remember, many curbs have jointed mouthpieces. The bit you're using has shanks and leverage, so we call it a curb.

To everyone posting on this page, I have known this horse(and its owner) for 15 years. The mare tosses her head as a bad habit. She always has done it, never out of pain. She has been tested for everything, has no ill fitting tack or pain of any kind. She just simply tosses her head... I realize making make shift draw reins and attaching them to a breast plate is not the best thing to do, but for the 20 minutes that she was ridden... I'm sure it would not matter. AND FYI, that bit is a snaffle with a short shank. It is not a curb, we do not ever use them. So know all the facts before you sit here complaining to a green rider that had no fault in tacking the horse up. Her owner is at fault but like I said, the horse was ridden walk/jog for 20 MINUTES PEOPLE. Get over it, go pick on someone else now. :)

All I was doing was informing, not picking on anyone.

Sorry, but snaffles don't have shanks. If they have shanks, they are no longer a snaffle. A snaffle is a bit that uses direct pressure, while a bit with shanks uses leverage instead, and are called a curb bit. Curb bits can have broken mouthpieces, as equiniphile said.

Or so I believe...

No such thing. Snaffles have 1:1 pressure ratio. Adding any leverage changes that ratio, thus is not a snaffle.
Unfortunately, tack companies mislabel shank bits as "snaffles" to make it seem like a mild bit.

I'm not jumping on anyone, though I do go "eep!!!!" when I see dangerous/bad training practices shown, and hope to educate people.

There is not a single post in this thread where someone is picking on the OP. Every post has been informative and approached very professionally.

I understand that you guys are informing me.. and thank you I will remember that when I get my own horse.. but I really didnt post the pics expecting it to go into arguing or whatever :{ its actually makeing me really sad because im really trying hard to get past some very bad coaching that I had two years ago that made me hate rideing and so scared to trot that I ended up bawling because I had a panic attack its taken me a year and a bit to start feeling comfortable
