A curb strap, or curb chain, is a piece of horse tack used on any type of curb bit. It is a flat linked chain or braided strap that runs under the chin groove of the horse, between the bit shank purchase arms. It has a buckle or hook attachment and often has a “fly link” in the middle to apply a lip strap. Normally the horse is bridled with the curb chain undone, it is then fastened and adjusted once the horse has been bridled. When unbridling, undo the curb chain/strap also. This keeps the bit from getting caught or hung up in the horses mouth while inserting or removing the bit”.
