Myler Combination Bits 3 Ring MB02
The Myler Combination Bits 3 Ring MB02 has 3 rings to choose where to attach reins. It is a hybrid of a ring bit, shank bit and Hackamore. The Myler Combination Bit synchronizes the pressure applied to nose, chin and poll. By simply changing the noseband/chin strap adjustment, the rider can control how much pressure the mouthpiece applies and to what degree the nose, chin, and poll are engaged.
The mouthpiece floats on the ring and the noseband and chin strap remain stationary until the reins are engaged.
The Combination Bit is applicable across a wide range of horses. It works well for young or green horses but can also be used on older horses being retrained to a new sport or for horses competing in events that require speed, agility and maneuverability such as:
- barrel racing
- cross country
- mounted shooting
Myler Bit Level 1
Stainless Steel 3-Ring Combination Bit - 6" Shank with Sweet Iron Comfort Snaffle Wide Barrel (MB 02, Level 1) Copper Inlay Mouth 5"
This mouthpiece is made of polished Sweet Iron which naturally oxidizes or rusts. Harmless to horses, it has a sweet taste and promotes salivation. Comes with black leather noseband and synthetic black curb strap.
The MB 02 mouthpiece is the Myler alternative to the traditional three-piece mouthpiece commonly used in snaffle bits.
When the reins are engaged the MB02 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 3-ring combination bit uses five different pressure points to disperse rein pressure.
When the reins are engaged, the horse first feels the nose, chin, and poll pressure before he feels the mouthpiece.
The mouthpiece can slide 1" before reaching the stop where it will engage. The horse has ample opportunity to respond to the rein signals before the mouthpiece engages.
The rein pressure is distributed over multiple pressure points rather than just the tongue or bars.
The 3-ring offers three different rein positions.
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
