happy mouth bits
are they legal for dressage ?? i think they are, but i have never wanted to compete with one so im not sure !!
thanks in advance !
Huh, good question. I've always thought that the bits have to be of one metal?
What are Happy mouth bits actually?
Sorry if that is off topic!
But curiousity took the hand!
thats what i thought, then i tried to look it up online & some people said happy mouth was okay & some didnt & lots werent sure =/
i found my answer !!
"Bits (including curb and/or bridoon bits of a double bridle) mustbe made of metal or rigid plastic and may be covered with rubber"
So the happy mouths are made of rigid plastic right? Or do they not count because they have metal underneath?
Glad you found your answer! That's good to know for future reference as well :)
Please talk to the steward BEFORE riding your horse in one of these. Any time you are riding in a non traditional bit, even if it is listed as legal it is always advisable to get permission from the steward BEFORE. That way if there is any discrepancy, it will be sorted out before your test, and not after or during.
I. Did at a show and had no problems.
