What type of bit is this?

What type of bit is this? Can I use this bit without a curb chain? Thanks. I'll put a picture of it up soon as it is currently on my horse's bridle so i'll get it when I ride today. It has a straight bar in the middle with a bend in it (similar to a curb bit) and a D ring on each side. Above the D ring is a small recatangle which the cheekpeices attach to. Curb chain hooks hang down from the rectangle. The reins attach to the D ring. Thanks.

From your discription, it sounds like a Kimberwick bit. Is it like this:

Does your bit look like this?

This is a kimberwick, it very much so IS a curb bit so you will need to use a curb chain but not a western one. More like the one in the picture. The two slots are for the amount of leverage, the one higher up is the lighter of the two and has min. Curb leverage. The bottom of the two has more leverage.

This is an english bit.

Yes, it is exactly like that except that it does not have the two slots on the D rings at the side, the rein just attaches to the D ring at any random point. Thanks so much for that, it is nice to know what it is called.
