What bit you use will depend on a few factors. For example, if your gelding is a Quarter horse, and he is over 5 years old, he must be shown in a curb bit for Western events. If you are showing at approved breed or association shows, I would look up the rules for bits in those particular disiplines to help you pick out a bit.
If your horse does really well in a simple snaffle, there isn't any need to put him into a harsh bit. I'll post a few good threads about bits on here in another post.
