Dressage: bits for walk/trot tests?

I had planned on taking Murray to a Dressage show this year, but time came zooming by and he's just not ready. But my question is, what bit can I use for him in a simple walk/trot test? He is ridden in a D-Ring copper roller at the moment. Is this ok or should I use another bit? Thank you.

That one sounds like it would be fine to me, as long as he's going well in it and all. ;)

It sounds like a perfect bit! As long as he accepts it and goes good with it, have fun!

Most all snaffles are now accepted for USDF shows, except some of the mylers.

From what I understand, the bit has to be all one metal, so a copper roller would not be allowed.

They list what bits are permitted. Which show are you looking at doing? I may try for one in June, depending on Stinky Butt of course.

If the shows in the US... the rules have changed. They no longer have to be all one metal.
Sounds fine to me... although is it just eventing where you cannot have a roller...?

Yes, you can have multi-metal bits for USDF now (in the USA). You can't use a middle roller, but those copper/stainless/copper alternating roller bits are allowed.

Okay, so I looked it up:
http://www.usef.org/documents/ruleBook/2009/08-DR.pdf

Hmm, it doesn't say that roller bits are or are not allowed. Rotating bits (like a Myler Comfort Snaffle) ARE now allowed (as of this year).

Thanks!
