Some of the harsher bits can long term desensitize a horse’s mouth, something you do not want to happen for the dressage & show jumping classes. Your trainer should have a good knowledge of bits, and a better handle on what might work in your horse for the cross country without creating new problems for the dressage & stadium jumping phases, so I would start with him or her. Then perhaps ask here if anybody has tried the bit or bits he/she suggests, and what results they had.
