I just called the curb strap police!! They are on their way to pick up your horse and all your tack!!! (LOL)
As long as your horse doesn't mind, using that curb bit and strap is OK. It may not be acceptable in a show but for schooling or hacking, it is just fine, especially if that is what he is used to. BTW, you know that you have to neck rein him with that bit - not direct rein.
I like your stirrup holder. What I used to do was to take the excess stirrup leather and run it around the step on the stirrup to help hold it. That way I didn't have anything extra to carry or lose.
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.
