Thank you for such a great thread - my boy is fresh ott and although I have chosen an egg butt snaffle with single joint- the only thing that I find with it is that he tends to chomp when I first put it in his mouth but after about 5 mins he settles. He is very responsive on it (from the ground) and it does seem to make things easier for him to understand - simple straighjt forward thread thank you :)

Hi this is my first post so forgive me if I am in the wrong place, I would like some help regarding a bit I have bought. It is an ozbits Campdraft bit and I have bought it because the actual bit is the same as the bit I have always used but it has side pieces to stop it going thru the horses mouth.I didnt want to go to a tom thumb and I did like the look of this one, but now I have it I am a little confused as to how to attach it to the bridle I don't want to put it upside down and after considering a few options on where I think the cheek pieces and the reins go I wondered if someone could offer advice. Thankyou

I would HIGHLY recommend the "The Ultimate Book of Horse Bits" by Emily Esterson, great material, even for the experienced trainers..

This may have been answered already, but I couldn't find it...does anyone know the reasoning behind some western riders putting a curb strap on a snaffle bit?

I would assume the only reason to put a curb on a snaffle is to keep it from coming through the mouth

I didn't think of that...I wondered if was some sort of transition-to-curb theory...I never had a snaffle come thru the mouth...

Technically it should not be called a curb strap but a chin strap. It has no action on the bit bar preventing it from sliding through the horses mouth.

A curb strap acts as a fulcrum to allow the pressure of the bit in the mouth to increase and poll pressure to be generated.
