A curb strap (or chain - or chin strap) is always used on a leverage bit - always. Anyone using a leverage bit without one is misusing it and defeating the purpose. Many riders put one on a snaffle just to keep the bit from being pulled through a horse's mouth.
BTW, it's never put on a bridle, just the bit.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
