Many Western riders use a curb strap, usually just a leather one, to keep the cheek piece from pulling through their horse's mouth. It isn't necessary on a trained horse but helpful on a green one. Pretty much as Wild Spot suggested.
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.
