If your horse is gaping his mouth enough that the bit is pulling through, there's other issues there. A properly fitting snaffle on a horse that isn't trying to evade the bit should not need a curb chain. I'd evaluate WHY the bit is pulling through before just slapping a curb chain on it.

He dosnt open his mouth. I just want to prevent having it pulled out of his mouth. I use it sort of like a bit hobble.
