    Default Happy mouth "revolver"- legal for dressage?

    http://www.123tack.com/happy-mouth-r...-ring-bit.html

    The middle piece doesn't rotate like a roller, but the two sides of the bit swivel independently similar to a Myler.

    I've been told mixed things. I had a R judge tell me yes (he went on to show one of his own horses in one) and had folks on here tell me no. My gelding chewed his up & I didn't replace it.

    It is my understanding that it is one of the bits that is covered by
    EV Appendix 4 Permitted snaffles
    15. Ordinary snaffle with rotating mouth piece
    and the accompanying diagram

    To be sure, check with USEF (not USEA)
