I was wondering if someone can help me, last year i showed my purebred colt bitted but had the chain connected to the hooks then went round the back of his chin so not actually attached to the bit (if that makes sense)? What i wanted to know is that as he is a four year old this year does the lead/chain have to be connected to the bit?
I appreciate anyones help. Thanks

I was told it didn't; they just had to have a chain.

It is my understanding that although he must wear a bit the chain does not have to be attached to it.

My stallion was always shown off the chain and not the bit.

Do you need a chain?
How about a leather coupling onto the bit?

The chain doesn't have to be attached to the bit.
Only time you see it is if the bridle is a slip head without the nose.

If you look at any photo's from the shows in the events sections - the stallions are all shown bitted, but non of them have the chain through the bit if it can be run off the nose.

It depends on how you perceive the rule.

It says that all entires aged 4 and over must be bitted.
On one hand it doesn't say that the lead should come off the bit - only that the horse must wear one.
On the other hand, the natural assumption would be that if the horse is bitted, the lead must come off the bit.

I think there needs to be more clarification on the rule with the AHS.

I have never been told to attach the lead to the bit when showing stallions.

There is no rule that the lead must be attached to the bit, just that he must be bitted. lots of stallions are shown off the chain rather than the bit.
