Weaver Draft Solid Curb Bit

The ideal draft curb bit if you need something that applies bar and palate pressure but has a small port for tongue relief.


Mullen bits are curved to provide additional space for the horse’s tongue, which results in more tongue relief for greater comfort. Mullen bits are considered mild bits. Low port curb bits are also designed to be mild. We have models that are ideal for younger horses and those horses with sensitive palates. Other styles make good transition bits when moving from a traditional snaffle to a shank bit. Low port bits put pressure directly on the bars. We offer various types of Mullen and low port curb bits from FES, Myler and Robart™. For information on how to measure Western bits, see the product detail pages.

FES Low Port and Mullen Bits

From FES, we have different styles of low port and mullen bits. Their sweet iron low port grazing bit is lightweight and applies moderate palate pressure and tongue relief. Aluminum swept back loose cheeks give horses a signal that cues are coming. Sweet iron with copper inlay enhances sensitivity and promotes salivation. For horses that have sensitive palates, there is the mullen barrel bit, which is a good transition bit for horses previously using a traditional snaffle. It applies pressure to the bars of the mouth and the tongue. Another transition bit from snaffle to shank bit is their Western swivel loose flat cheek bit. It has a mild lower port and applies pressure to the bars. Loose cheeks won’t pinch the corners of the horse’s mouth.

Western jointed port/roller mouth bits are excellent for training, as they encourage balance, suppling and flexation. Each side of the bit can work separately, and the style won’t pinch the horse’s cheeks. For more experienced horses and riders, we have the Western sweet iron mullen bumper bit. This bit can soften the mouth of a well broke horse, and it applies pressure directly to the bars of the mouth.

Myler Barrel Bits

These Myler ported barrel bits have a sweet iron mouthpiece with copper inlay that promotes salivation. The ported mouth design provides relief to the tongue while applying bar pressure. Curved mouthpiece and port removes pressure on the tongue so that the horse can easily swallow. The embossed style has a scroll design pattern, while the other allows independent side movement.

Robart Long Shank Medium Port Bits

Key features of the Robart long shank bit includes the ability to work each side separately, and an innovative design that eliminates cheek and tongue pinching. The mouthpiece has a copper inlay to enhance sensitivity and promote salivation.
