Personally, I really hate kimberwickes. I find them very crude bits, in that you have no control over you're using the curb or not. Same goes with pelhams w/converters. You have the curb in play all the time, there's no room for discretion regarding when your horse actually needs the curb.
For stadium, I'd use the pelham w/two reins (sans converters). Perhaps for cc you could get away with using converters, but that's a personal choice.
As for dressage, you need a plain snaffle.
