Do you mean like on a pelham or kimberwick? If you use one of those bits than yes you are allowed.

The bit I use now is a full cheek twisted snaffle

Would it better better to use a different bit?

A curb chain won't have an effect when combined with a snaffle bit - you need a leverage bit for that, such as a kimblewick or pelham. A hanging snaffle has a teeny amount of leverage but it's not customary to use a curb with it either and I'm not sure the effect would be correct.
Besides, I'm not sure any leverage bits are allowed in hunters, but I could be wrong as I'm not even American!

Are you the same person as in the other thread about using a curb with a snaffle?

Kimberwickes and pelhams are allowed for sure, not sure about anything else :)

Yeah, I've used a pelham for jumping before so I know those are allowed.

I agree- they are probably allowed. I've seen 'em used before.
