NRHA legal curb straps

Had my first reining lesson in awhile today. It was a blast! Had to travel nearly and hour and half, but it was completly worth it. I can't wait for another one.
At the end of my lesson my trainer pointed out my illegal chin strap, I knew it was illegal but I had only done schooling shows and its just flat chain, no rubbing or marks, I put it on because my good one broke. I can't believe I forgot to change it last year . That could of got me in trouble. Anyways, I googled NRHA legal curb straps but I didn't find anything, so what should I look for? My horse isn't misbehaved, rude or pushy. I just need a legal one!
Thank you

If memory serves they have to be double. They can not be covered in any way. I know that for a fact b/c I only use leather or a covered burb on my stallion and if I use a covered one I have to change it out before I show him. It is funny that even the rule book does not address it very well either. I have shown NRHA shows with a leather curb but I am not sure if those are legal or not any more. Your best bet would be to ask your trainer or call NRHA.
