    These both use leverage to pull the crown piece of the bridle onto the poll nerve, not the jaw. Kinder than a curb, IMHO.

    I don't like argentines because they have all the severity of both curb and snaffle (nutcracker action on jaw) but none of the kindness.
    your correct, if the bit has poll pressure and a non moving (eg doesnt pull up in the mouth) then its a curb, ie a shank or pelham

    However gags do pull up in the mouth the mouth piece sliiides. Making it not a curb. Like so
