View Full Version : 2 ring elevator bit legal or no?

Oct. 29, 2009, 11:51 PM
Will be campaining a horse for a client. Horse used to foxhunt, jumps best in a 2 ring elevator bit on the higher ring. Get a faster "come back" response to or after fences. Although I successfully jump him in a loose ring french link, just wondering if elevator bits are illegal at starter trials or recognized. Its just a little extra control that this guy needs sometimes. JUst wanted to know for future knowledge. THANKS

legal for jumping phases, not for dressage

Any bit is legal for jumping, although I suppose if you had a bicycle chain bit and used it badly you could get set down for cruelty. The only bit restrictions are in dressage, and those are all spelled out in the rulebook.
