Myler Bits for the English and Western Horse

The Myler System will open your mind to a new way of understanding the horse’s mouth and how the bit sits and works. Third generation horsemen, Ron, Dale and Bob Myler developed the Myler Bit System through tongue relief and tongue pressure while working with their own horses.

Often when a horse resists the bit, they’re uncomfortable. Myler bits theory stems around the idea that resistant horses are reacting to the bit and the pressure it puts on their tongue. When a horse is resisting the bit, they actually are reacting to tongue pressure, which is inhibiting them from swallowing freely. Myler works to free your horse tongue providing your horse with more comfort with the bit.

From Myler’s Bitting System: Determining Your Horse’s Myler Level

"The Myler Level of your horse is based on his disposition and experience. It’s a graduated system, meaning that as he learns, he earns more tongue relief. As you go up in Myler Level, the correlating mouthpiece designs offer more tongue relief and apply less tongue pressure. When your horse resists the bit, go softer not harsher.

Myler Level 1:

Young or green, just beginning training, with a challenging disposition OR riding in a discipline that restricts bits to a single-jointed mouthpiece.

Myler Level 2:

Young or green, just beginning training, with a steady disposition OR Older, just beginning training, training for a new discipline, or retraining after a long lapse OR Riding in a Level 1 mouthpiece and showing resistance.

Myler Level 2-3:

Basic training with a good disposition and self-control, can handle more tongue relief OR Advanced training but a challenging disposition —anxious, aggressive, or fearful OR Riding in a Level 2 mouthpiece and showing resistance.

Myler Level 3:

Performance horse with advanced training and a solid disposition• Experienced trail horse with a solid/trustworthy disposition or Riding in a Level 2-3 curb bit and showing resistance.

How to Select a Myler bit’s mouthpiece:

Myler mouthpiece designs correspond to the Myler Level of a horse’s behavior and experience. The mouthpiece Levels start at Level 1, which apply maximum tongue pressure, and go up to Level 3, which apply minimum tongue pressure and offer the most tongue relief. Most horses can avoid Level 1 altogether; it’s quite possible that your horse can enter the Myler System at Level 2, 2-3, or even 3.

Myler mouthpiece Level 1:

Rotates on to the tongue to apply tongue pressure. Collapses to form a "U" instead of a "V," protecting lips and bars from being pinched. Curves to allow more room for the tongue, protects the lips and bars from being pinched. Independent side movement on most mouthpieces in this level.

Myler mouthpiece Level 2:

Offers tongue relief with either a small port or flexible mouthpiece. Rotates on to the tongue to apply some tongue pressure. Collapses to form a "U" instead of a "V," protecting lips and bars from being pinched. Curves to allow more room for the tongue, protects the lips and bars from being pinched. Independent side movement on most mouthpieces in this level.

Myler mouthpiece Level 2-3:

Ported, offering more tongue relief than Level 1 or 2. Correctional mouthpieces that apply some tongue pressure or curb mouthpieces that apply little tongue pressure. Uses more bar, poll, chin pressure than Level 1 or 2. Curves to allow more room for the tongue. Options with and without independent side movement.

Myler mouthpiece Level 3:

Curb bits with wider ports for maximum tongue relief, little to no tongue pressure. Uses primarily bar, poll, and curb pressure. Curves to allow more room for the tongue. Options with and without independent side movement."
