chin strap question

Alright sooo I got a jr cow horse bit annd I'm pretty sure I'm correct but just want to make sure. These bits you have to use and actual chain not one with the nylon/leather ends correct?? Haha I'm having a minor issue remembering as its been a loong couple of weeks. Also no I have not used the bit yet so don't worry hah this is why I am double checking before I try it out
Its this one

I don't see any reason why you couldn't use a regular curb strap with that bit.

I was just curious as I'm pretty sure I have only seen it used with a plain chain.

I agree. I play around with curb straps and chains on different bits all the time. A chain is normally more severe than a flat leather strap, so with a stronger bit I will use a leather curb strap to lessen the severity and for a milder bit (if I feel it needs a little more bite) I will use a chain.

Also, a single chain is usually more severe than a flat, double chain.

If you mean a curb strap with a chain center yes.. Get the double kind flat chain. If you mean a chain chain like goes on a pelham or kimberwick, no... That bit isn't designed for that type of curb chain. Did that make sense?
