Myler HBT Shank Low Port Comfort Snaffle Bit

Item # 25503
A nice choice bit for horses that already have basic training and are now learning lateral flexion and lifting at the shoulder. This bit applies direct pressure across the tongue as it begins the introduction of tongue relief with its low port. The polished sweet iron mouthpiece has copper inlay to promote salivation and has independent side movement to allow riders to isolate one side of the bit for sending clearer signals. The attractive black seven shanks with stainless steel dots and the mouthpiece will naturally rust over time.

Features include:

  • Nice for teaching horses lateral flexion and to lift at the shoulder
  • Polished sweet iron mouth with copper inlay promotes salivation
  • Low port with a stainless barrel relieves some tongue pressure
  • Stainless steel shanks and sweet iron mouthpiece with copper inlay
  • Allows independent side movement for sending clearer signals
  • Applies pressure across the tongue while allowing some tongue relief
  • Mouthpiece will rust over time to produce an even sweeter taste
  • Mouth: 5”
  • Shanks: 5”
  • Bar diameter: 7/16”
  • Center barrel: 1 1/16”
  • Level: 2

Myler HBT Shank Low Port Comfort Snaffle Bit
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.
