Myler Combination Bits 3 Ring MB43LP
The Myler Combination Bits 3 Ring MB43LP has a narrow port that puts some pressure on the 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

Stainless Steel 3-Ring Combination Bit - 6" Shank with Sweet Iron Low Ported Barrel Narrow (MB 43LP, 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 43LP is a curb mouthpiece that does not rotate on to the tongue, but sits solidly across the bars and lips of the horse’s mouth. The port is narrower than a Level Three mouthpiece, but still offers room for the tongue to pass under the bit easily. Because the port is narrow, when the reins are engaged, the horse will feel a slight pressure on the outside edges of the tongue as the bars of the bit rotate across the bars and outer lips – a gentle reminder rather than a strong reprimand. It is the mildest of the Level Two-Three mouthpieces.

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.
