(from a very knowledgeable dressage person) This bit is NOT legal for dressage as stated in the below review. I have worked for 10 years at our clubs dressage shows. We sometimes hold the Southwest Championships and I have been a bit examiner. We have contacted the AHSA about bits (TDs are not always certain) and they ruling is "if all parts of the bit are not pictured in the current rulebook, they are not legal". The various parts can be in combination. It took awhile for the popular Herman Sprenger KK bits to become legal. And I'm sure you remember the fuss about "all parts of the bit have to be the same material" which they have now clarified by saying all parts of the bit coming into the horses mouth. It can get confusing, but it keeps us on our toes. I have the Myler little book and it is very interesting. Its funny, the bits all have numbers in the book, yet if you go to a tack store and ask for a bit by the number, they usually tell you they don't have numbers! Some of my dressage friends like the #36 for training horses that are heavy on the forehand.
