Curb bit[keisti]

Curb bits are bits that have shanks and use leverage, regardless of mouthpiece. A curb bit might have a jointed mouthpiece or a solid mouthpiece.

Combination designs, curb and snaffle pressure[keisti]

A bridle may be able to apply both snaffle and curb leverage, depending on the bits used and where the reins are attached to them.

Snaffle Bit[keisti]

Snaffle bits are bits that use direct pressure without leverage, regardless of mouthpiece. Not all snaffle bits have jointed mouthpieces, and a bit with a jointed mouthpiece is not always a snaffle, it depends on the type of leverage.
