Is this twine pulling down on the bridge of the horse's nose, down towards it's chest? (hooked to the girth, or to the breastplate?)
If so, it's a form of tie-down. A gimick really, because although it's purpose is to keep the horse's head down and it's body rounded, it only serves to make the horse brace against pressure, and form uneven, bulgy muscles in the wrong places. If it looks like twine, it's most likely baling string (it ties a hay square up.) and it's just someone's cheap way of masking a problem.
Not too sure about the piece in the horse's mouths...
