It has a rounded ring with fixed attachment of the mouthpiece and a post that extends equidistant above and below the mouthpiece. Posts are slightly angled away from the cheek to prevent rubbing.

Myler Bit Level 1
Size - 5"
Stainless Steel Full Cheek with Hooks with Stainless Steel Comfort Snaffle with Copper Roller (MB 03, Level 1) Copper Inlay Mouth.
The Comfort Snaffle with Copper Roller mouthpiece is the Myler alternative to the traditional three-piece mouthpiece commonly used in snaffle bits.
When the reins are engaged the MB03 will rotate fully on to the tongue in order to apply the necessary tongue pressure to teach a horse to give to the bit or break at the poll.
The bars of the bit are curved so the bit wraps the bars and lips of the mouth instead of pinching them when it rotates on to the tongue.
The curve makes more room for the tongue under the bit.
The barrel distributes the pressure kindly on the tongue.The Copper Roller on the center barrel can comfort horses that are restless or nervous.
The Myler Level One horse would:
Be young and inexperienced
Be just beginning training
Be riding in a discipline that restricts bits to snaffle with jointed mouthpiece
