    Since I ride in a snaffle, and don't know, I have to ask - are we talking about one bit/two reind here (pelham bit), or two bits/two reins (as in a double bridle, with a bradoon and a curb). If one bit - is it jointed, therefore the "snaffle rein"?
    It applies to both a pelham and a double bridle. The "snaffle rein" is the one with no leverage. It makes no difference whether the mouthpiece is jointed or not.
