    Default Legal Bit? WTP

    I think this bit is legal since it does not have a rotating center piece but I'd like to check and see what y'all think....

    Hmmmm......I too am interested! Except the one with the tongue plate looks like it might be good for ottb who is mouthy and almost windsucks when she gets excited. I hope someone chimes in with a response soon.

    I have no clue, but I'm pretty sure you can use a bit with a rotating center piece (do you meant ruler? )

    It is my understanding that "hinged" bits (which is what this appears to be) are NOT legal for either Eventing dressage or straight dressage.

    Bu check with USEF to be sure.

    "Rotating center piece" is different from "roller".

    But this bit is neither of those.

    It looks to me as if it were a jointed snaffle with the joint covered to prevent jabbing the horse in the roof of the mouth. What would be the benefit of that over a three piece like a french link or an oval bean?.

    That's what it is, I think- A regular snaffle with a cover on the joint. I will check with the USEF and revert.
    thanks!

    USEF says it is not permitted since it is not pictured in Appendix 4 of the rules
