Horse Curb Straps & Curb Chains


Whoa, rider... Curb straps and curb chains have a purpose of working with a bit to make that horse stop, but they need to be comfortably placed, cause most times, we want to go! 

For most instances, with no pressure on the reins, as the bit hangs in the mouth of the horse, there should be four fingers flat, between the curb of the horse and the strap or chain. Your horse needs some wiggle room so it can be signaled before the "bite" happens. After a while, the horse will almost know what you are asking before you do. If the curb strap is much more loose, it becomes ineffective. If it is too tight, it creates an atmosphere of fear and pain. (Your horse will fight you.)

All this, while the bit is pulled toward the poll with only one wrinkle on each side of the mouth.

If using a hackamore, start with the same 4 finger rules. Pressure should be signaled, then applied, whether the pressure is in the mouth, over the nose, or at the curb, or poll. 

General rules: Leather straps are less severe than chains. Single chains are more severe than double link chains. Chains that can twist flat, or be scrambled, are very gentle when flat and increase in severity as twists are put in. English type curb chains with the stainless hooks are a favorite training device in both English and Western worlds. They react and release fast. They fit on smaller bit loops. If your horse will not turn or stop, use a drop noseband, before you try tightening the curb more than 3 fingers flat. Ponies need pony straps. Yes, a hay string will work. Reinsman even has rope end chains. Buckles should normally be placed away from the horse. 

Quick links will substitute for English type curb hooks. Logging chains are overkill, usually!

Once you place either curb hooks in position, use offset channel locks or vise grips to squeeze the metal around your bit. We suggest squeezing the curbside drop too. On the off side hook, squeeze to the point it is difficult, but you can pull the chain link in and out. On the near side, be almost that tight, not quite. This way, even in a head shaking accident, you will not loose your chain, and you can take it loose to make it easier to pull your bridle on and off.
