Question Western pleasure bit.

Could this bit below be used as a western pleasure bit? We have just started to jog, lope and learn her headset. I plan to just use this bit for western pleasure and nothing else. Tell me what you think! Have any of you had any experence using these bits? Could I also use this bit in shows?

Please do not start your horse in a curb bit until she knows and has almost perfected everything in a snaffle, especially neck reining.

Do you have any suggestions?

This is the bit we use now, but im worried she will get so use to the pressure in this one and be confused with the curb bit. She can't show in the bit we have her on now. She has her basics, we are just working on slower her down and collecting herself into the jog and lope and her finding rythme.

Ok I will reply more when I have a full keyboard, but I will say now that you have to remember that most of your riding (ESPECIALLY in a curb) comes from your seat and leg aids. When you ride in a curb, you *should* be able to ride with floss for reins just about, because your riding comes from your body, NOT your bit.

Im just looking for a new bit that I will be able to show in, and teach collection in. From the discription that dover saddlery gives it seems to be the right bit. What are some concerns you have towards this bit? Just curious;D I did read the article that you put up, and there was this mouthpiece you commented on, and said it was a "Very nice mild mouthpiece" and "independent side action". I do realise that almost all of your riding comes from your legs and seat, and I would like a bit that would be aiming more towards what I am trying to achive.
