TB ex-racer - French link loose ring snaffle

Haflinger - mullen mouth myler snaffle (dressage legal)

Just backed haflinger - sweet iron and copper French link loose ring snaffle.

11.1 pony Shetland cross - loose ring French link snaffle.

All are the chosen for being simple, basic, no unnecessary curb action and dressage legal at low level.

For hunting I do use a kimblewick on the haflinger as she can be hard to stop when excited.

Barrel horses go in a sweet iron junior cowhorse or d ring snaffle

My show horse is ridden in a simple sweet iron grazing curb, and a d ring for schooling and draw rein work. (Please no comments on draw reins, they're not my favorite things but she's not my horse so she is ridden how her owner wants her ridden)

I'm a big believer in less is more. I originally wanted him in a french link, but he didn't like it. Tried a kk ultra bit, hated it even more. So clearly the double joints didn't sit well with him. Tried a regular snaffle next, and boom, he was happy as a clam.
Glad I'm not the only one! I have a 19 yr old Morgan mare and mostly just do pleasure riding/ low level dressage. She has a 5 in no name single jointed dee ring snaffle. For the longest time I was trying to get her in something double jointed since it is "milder." Tried a happy mouth racing d, a French link dee with copper-hated those. So, if it's not broke, don't fix it, right?? Back we went to the simple single jointed dee.

I use a Myler on my Appaloosa. Why? Because my trainer said so, haha! No seriously, he goes much better in it than in his previous bit (full cheek elliptical mouthpiece). I like that it goes to 'neutral' if you have little to no contact so it releases/'rewards' quickly if you give him more rein.
I think it's called a "Correctional Ported Barrel" and it has the D rings with slots for reins and cheekpieces.

I ride my 9 y/o Lusitano x QH in the KK Ultra 2-Type. I got this one because I'be had good results with KK Ultra in the past with other horses, but the regular loose ring version was irritating my horses lips. The 2-type stops that irritation while still giving the feel of a loose ring.

I use a different bit when I jump on the advice of my trainer- it's not any stronger, just different so he can differentiate between tasks. For jumping I use an eggbutt French link with copper roller. This bit specifically because it came with him when I bought him
