AK, could you, please, post what is Hanoverian bridle? Never heard of it, so just curious. French link is a nice mild bit, would be my choice too.
If bridle is just standard english bridle for trail riding I'd probably remove the noseband, but I've seen people using the complete bridle on trails as well.
