Subject: jointed snaffle is ideal per FHANA
In reply to: Megan 's message, "Use the traditional in hand horse shoe bit" on 05:57:26 07/25/11 Mon

That is the wrong bit and Megan is right. The one called in-hand show bit can be used and I have seen them used. I in fact own this bit and may show in it at the keuring. The other one that you are referencing is a driving bit and not correct. From the FHANA website it states: "Tack-Horses two and older should be presented in a bridle with a bit (jointed snaffle is ideal) and this includes the dams of foals; many handlers elect to put a chain under the horse’s chin and through the bit rings to provide more control; foals and yearlings should be presented in Halters; white headstalls, halters and leads are traditional but not mandatory."
