I've always shown in the same bit I school in. None of my horses have never needed anything stronger though for any reason (like an over-eager jumper) or been ridden something not legal for the discipline they're doing. I even took my gelding to a gaming show in his myler snaffle bit >.> Although that's one instance where I probably should have taken the curb. Ask me again later this year and I might have a different response... Cally my new mare might require something a bit stronger than at home when showing. We'll see D:

I show and school in the same bit: KK Ultra 2-Type for dressage, and an eggbutt double-jointed snaffle with copper roller for jumping.

My boss has all of his horses flat in a loose ring snaffle but many of them jump in stronger bits, mainly just the jumpers. Even at horse shows everyone gets schooled in a loose ring.
