I've never heard of different nosebands being used to help give more of a release. Can you ask your instructor to explain this a little better?

I have used a crank in hunters at schooling shows where they're pretty strict on legal tack (shows used as part of OPHA circuit). I've never heard of them being illegal, but we should wait for someone else to come and confirm that.

I bet they didn't suggest what type of bridle you should use to achieve this, and why.

Because it's just talk. Equiniphile is right.

It's good to question stuff 'trainers' tell you, to see if you think it makes logical sense. There's often no real right and wrong when schooling horses, just opinions, but some things are more right than others :)

Best of luck.

PS. Figure-8 bridle is just a fancy name for a bridle with a grakle, usually of the less effective (IMO) Mexican type. As someone else (sorry to whoever explained it before) said it stops the horse resisting the bit by crossing its jaws. Pretty strong noseband usually used on horses that pull (as per my avatar).
