FEI Dressage Tests – Bits not allowed

The equipment expert group met last week and determined that these two bits, the DC Happy Tongue swivel, and cable bits, would both not be allowed in FEI Dressage competitions as they have different effects on the horse from the equipment images in Annex 11 of the FEI Dressage Rules. As the rules are now written, equipment must have the same effect on the horse as the images provided to go along with the written rules. The hanging cheek of the DC Happy Tongue Swivel would have a different effect from the standard hanging cheek. The cable as a joint in the bit would also be different from a standard joint.
