Myler Bits English Dee with Hooks MB06
The Myler Bits English Dee with Hooks MB06 has a center barrel piece that allows the bit to have independent side movement. The low wide port provides ample room for the tongue. It is a D shaped ring with fixed attachment of the mouthpiece and slots "hooks" at the top and bottom of the ring for the bridle and rein attachment. There is a small hole behind the top slot for a curb chain. When the rein hook is used it is an indirect action bit. If the rein hook is not used it is direct action.
Attaching the headstall to the top hook holds the bit in the correct position instead of allowing it to slide around the bridle cheeks. Attaching the reins to the hooks allows the rider to lift the cheek and use the Independent Side Movement of the mouthpiece. (if available). Using hooks does not add leverage.
