I jump Fiona in a full cheek single jointed happy mouth snaffle at home and a happy mouth single jointed pelham at shows because she gets a little hyped up.
With Bru I'm still figuring things out as he's slowly coming back from lameness. I use to ride him in a kimberwicke for jumping (single jointed) as he gets quite strong and heavy but we're working on that, been riding him in a rubber single jointed full cheek.
With Fiona (never tried Bru with one) she disliked a french link, I think due to her small mouth. And actually she really really like a curb bit, I think the pressure makes it easier for here to understand but who knows.
The hunter bit around here is full cheek or D ring, and D ring I think has always been the cheekpiece of choice with all the big names riding in it, though full cheek is coming up.
