Myler Bits Western Dee With Hooks MB04
Myler Bits Western Dee with Hooks MB04 were recently
designed by Myler Bits and Tom Wicklund of Performance Horse Arena in
the Rogue Valley of Southern Oregon tested the bit on his training
horses to give Myler some input before it was released. Tom Wicklund is
in the photo riding the bay horse in this bit. The small ring on the top
of the bit ring is a bit different. It is designed so the curb strap
sits higher than normal. This positioning of the curb strap is
encourages to the horse to flex at the poll and give to the bit.
It is a Stainless Steel Western Dee with 2 Hooks and Sweet Iron Ported
Barrel (MB04, Level 2) Copper Inlay. This mouthpiece is made of
polished Sweet Iron which naturally oxidizes or rusts. Harmless to
horses, it has a sweet taste and promotes salivation.
Myler Bit Western Dee w/Hooks has an unique ring to attach the leather
curb strap. The special hooks or snaps are included in the Leather Curb
KIt 89-0042 by Myler. It is highly recommended to use this Leather Curb
Kit with this bit.
"I really like how it is designed for several reasons; the bit has a lot
of pre-signal to it from the lateral movement in themouth piece to the
travel of the rein and too the location of the curb strap ishigher up
and makes for better contact on the jaw bone."
"This bit works very well with the way I train and makes for an excellent
transition from the level 1 bits to level 2 - 3 bits. This bit has
become my #1 bit of choice for all of my horses. I do have different
mouth pieces to use depending on how far along the horse is but all of
them make it much easier for the horse to find his natural head set
while allowing me to be easy or soft with my hands. Also, this bit
gives a much better
signal to the horse when teaching him/her to back up and stop." - Tom
Wicklund, Performance Horse Arena
Myler Bit Level 2
Stainless Steel Western Dee with 2 Hooks with Sweet Iron Low Port Comfort Snaffle (MB 04, Level 2) Copper Inlay Mouth.
This mouthpiece is made of polished Sweet Iron which naturally oxidizes or rusts. Harmless to horses, it has a sweet taste and promotes salivation.
The level 2 MB04 mouthpiece will rotate on the tongue and apply tongue pressure; however it has a slight port that allows the horse to swallow when he is moving forward and relaxed.The barrel distributes the pressure kindly on the tongue. The MB04 provides an excellent transition from level one to level two.
