Myler Bitting System
 
Every horse and rider combination has an individual need that may require a specific bit.  As each need of horse and rider change over time and progress, it may become necessary to either upgrade or downgrade depending upon the level of your horse’s training or rider’s experience.
 
Mouthpiece level:
 
Level 1- Features a curved mouthpiece that allows the horse to swallow.  Uses tongue pressure and bar pressure, working mostly off of the tongue.  Myler bits distribute tongue pressure more evenly than traditional designs.  Uses restrict and release action.  May offer curb or poll pressure depending on shank design.  May offer independent side movement.
 
For horses that have just begun training or have had little training.  For horses that have just begun to break at the poll and just learning basic gaits.
 
Level 2- Features a curved mouthpiece.  Uses less tongue pressure and more pressure, with the mouthpiece rolling on the bars.  Applies pressure across the tongue rather that in the center.  May collapse into the bars.
 
For horses where basic training has been established.  For horses that are relaxed at the poll and holds position when rein is released.  For horses that possess more complex skills, such as bending, collection, side passes and lead changes.
 
Level 2-3- Features a curved, ported mouthpiece for tongue relief.  Offers variety of pressure points and more bar pressure, rolling on the bars.  May collapse into the bars.
 
For horses with a good mindset and can benefit from more tongue relief.  This level is for horses with advanced skills but requiring more control.
 
Level 3-  Features curved mouthpiece with tongue relief.  Offers a variety of pressure points to take the horse as soft as possible.  May offer palate pressure depending on port height.
 
For horses that are considered finished.  For horses that are relaxed at the poll and possess advanced skills and work great off of the riders legs and hands.
 
As your horse learns and progresses, your communication levels will change.  Each Myler bit is designed to use select pressure points to provide the best communication for that specific level.

Great Bit

By Z woman

Comments about Myler Dee Comfort Snaffle Wide Barrel:

My new eventing horse loves this bit. He tends to chomp on bits when nervous & has a soft mouth. This bit cuts down on those behaviors plus it provides clearer signals to him.

      Comments about Myler Dee Comfort Snaffle Wide Barrel:

      My just started 3 year old didn't want to take the snaffle bit that I use on my older horse after about a dozen times. Been using this Myler bit for the past month without problem. Great investment!

      What bits are made of...

      If you have any questions about this product or a type of bit, please contact us at 1-800-365-1311 or service@sstack.com
      Stainless Steel

      Bits are most commonly made of stainless steel. Stainless steel can be cleaned and polished repeatedly without damaging the finish. It is strong, durable, and flavorless and does not impact salivation. Some stainless steel mouths are inlaid with copper.

      Copper

      Copper encourages salivation to increase the sensitivity of the horse’s mouth. It warms up quicker than stainless steel in cold weather.

      Sweet Iron

      Sweet iron is cold-rolled steel. The material appears rusty after repeated use. This oxidation tastes sweet to the horse and increases salivation.  

      Rubber

      Rubber softens the action of the bit as it is softer than traditional metals. Rubber-covered bits are generally thicker than metal.   

      Aluminum

      Aluminum is lightweight and easy to maintain.

      Plastic

      Plastic bits are softer than traditional metal bits and they are durable. Many plastic bits are scented or flavored.

      Nickel Silver

      Nickel silver is a nickel alloy, also known as German silver. It encourages salivation for a more sensitive and supple mouth.
