Frequently Asked Questions About Myler Bits

What is a Myler bit good for?

Myler bits are good for every type of horse from young horses up to advanced competition horses. With their Myler Bit System consisting of different levels to help guide you to the right type of bit for your horse based on their training and experience, they have a good option for every type of horse.

What are the different levels of Myler bits, and what do they mean?

Myler Bit’s mouthpiece and cheekpiece designs along with their informative and easy system from Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3, provide the rider with an education tool to help the horse to accept the bit and relax into the bridle.

The Myler Bit System Level:

  • 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 do you select the 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 applies maximum tongue pressure, and go up to Level 3, which applies minimum tongue pressure and offers 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 to protect 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 onto the tongue to apply some tongue pressure. Collapses to form a "U" instead of a "V," protecting lips and bars from being pinched. Curves allow more room for the tongue and protect 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, and chin pressure than levels 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."

Do Myler bits run true to size?/ How do you fit a Myler?

Myler bits can appear to run larger than traditional horse bits due to the design of the mouthpiece they have to allow plenty of room for the tongue, a feature of their bits that is demonstrated by how many horses easily accept and often prefer a Myler bit. You should measure the size bit that works best in your horse’s mouth allowing at least ¼” to ⅛” of an inch between the corners of the lips and the extension of the mouthpiece that appears outside of their lips. A good rule of thumb is to see two wrinkles at the corner of your horse's mouth when a bit is fitted properly to the bridle.
