    Default Is this bit legal for dressage?

    Hey all - sorry to ask this, but I can't tell very well from descriptions/pictures on the USEA Rules website if this bit is legal or not for use in dressage. I'd rather be safe than sorry!

    I dont think it is... but if you go to the USEA site you can send someone an email about it- when i asked about a bridle they gave me their answer but said to check with USEF as they use their rules on tack etc..... good luck... there seems to be a shade of grey on the "jointed bits"....

    Nope, I had that bit and got it checked, they said no because of the rolly in the middle... Granted this was about a year ago.

    Not legal. Both the mouthpiece and the copper. Unless they've changed the rules on me again, which does happen, lol.

    copper no longer an issue, but rolling mouthpiece is, so not legal
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    NO not legal, shame a lot of horses go well in ball. The metal issue (using 2 kinds of metal in a bit) is not longer a issue thank god as it was a pretty antiquated rule anyhow ;-)
