I'm just gonna pop in and say that, at least at Arabian shows, you're required to show in a double bridle for saddleseat. We have horses that show saddleseat but also may, for example, trail ride on weekends. It's ridiculous to say that the difference in a simple snaffle for trail rides, and the curb/snaffle used for showing, means the horse has holes in its training. Using different bits doesn't necessarily mean that some are harsher than others. Different bits are used for different things sometimes.
