    Well, is they are showing any kind of rated hunter show, they probably won't place as converters are a huge no-no in the hunter ring. In jumpers it might be the set-up used for competition. A lot of horses in the jumper ring only use a particular bit for jumping/shows and for flatwork they use a basic snaffle.

    They were actually riders that ride under a trainer that is an Eventer but does h/j stuff too in the same set up. I though it was odd. My riders jump in snaffles.

    I think some beginners will use a converter when they're still learning how to navigate using 2 reins. And I've seen a few jumpers use converters I think to simplify all that's in their hands. I'm personally not a fan since it doesn't allow you to ride off just the snaffle but I understand why certain situations might call for it. I wouldn't say that it's specific to h/j riders or that it's even all that common... at least not around here.
