    Bridle and bit?!

    So I was planning to do jumpers with the horse I just bought.
    But I would also like to do hunters first and I'm guessing I'm going to have to buy a new bridle since mine is a figure 8. They will disqualify me with that type of bridle, correct?
    Also I had question about my bit. I heard that any snaffle is okay, which is what I have. I have a eggbutt some days and a D ring the rest. Is that okay?
    Thank you in advanced

    In Hunters you may only use a conventional noseband. Your bits are fine either one.


    In Jumpers you can use the figure 8 noseband and again the bits fine.

    Horselovinguy is absolutely correct. You will need a standard, cavesson noseband for hunters. Both egg butt and D ring snaffles are accepted. You should not need to buy a whole new bridle though. You can just buy a noseband by itself and swap it out. This would save you some money.

    They've got it spot on (and with some lovely pictures, no less ;) )

    If you choose to just switch out the nosebands, make sure the leather matches (it's best to stick with the same brand). And get something "fancy" (:
