Myler Combination Bits 3 Ring MB06
Myler Combination Bits 3 Ring MB06 - this Myler Combination Bit has a generous wide port that leaves ample room for the horse's tongue. 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 2-3
Stainless Steel 3-Ring Combination Bit - Sweet Iron Comfort Snaffle™ Wide Barrel (MB 06, Level 2-3) 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 MB06 is the Myler alternative to the traditional mullen mouthpiece. It has a wider low port that allows the tongue to pass under the bit with comfort. The port is just high enough to allow the tongue to elevate and swallow, but not high enough for palate pressure. The lower port does restrict the tongue more than other level 2-3 Myler mouthpieces. When the reins are engaged, the 06 applies pressure primarily to the bars and lips. This mouthpiece has Independent Side Movement.
When the reins are engaged the MB06 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.
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.
