I tend to leave them on the area next to the bars. However there are times I move them up. Again just depends. Like my stallion Te. I use a full leather curb strap as he dose not need a chain and I put it next to the bars so it has little torque to it. I also keep it very loose.
Now on my one mare since I use a Mylar Cathedral port but I put the curb chain higher. It is not b/c she needs it it is b/c I want to have to move my hand as little as possible and this works well FOR HER. Other horses it varies.
