Ergonomic Mouthpiece Design:
The unique curved bars of all Myler bits are ergonomically designed to accommodate the natural anatomy of the horse's mouth, wrapping the bars and lips instead of pinching. This curved design also provides significantly more space for the horse's tongue underneath the bit, allowing the horse to comfortably swallow when the reins are not engaged.
The Wide Low Ported Barrel mouthpiece is a curb mouthpiece that does not rotate onto the tongue, but instead sits solidly on the bars and lips of the horse's mouth, and is the Myler alternative to the traditional mullen mouthpiece. Unlike a traditional mullen, this mouthpiece offers a wide low port that allows the tongue to comfortably pass under the bit.
The 3/4" Low Port is not high enough to apply any palate pressure, but does not offer as much tongue relief as other Level 2-3 bits with higher ports, because the tongue is still somewhat restricted. However, this bit primarily applies bar/lip pressure, so though the tongue might be more restricted when the mouthpiece engages, little pressure is actually applied directly to the tongue.
Independent Side Movement:
The barrel at the center of the mouthpiece is not a roller, but rather a bushing that allows each side of the bit to move independently of the other. When the rider engages one rein on a traditional bit, the entire mouthpiece moves, creating a confusing signal for the horse. In comparison, when the rider engages one fixed rein using a Myler bit with ISM, the rider lifts only one side of the bit, giving a very clear, precise signal to the horse.
Please note that bits which have had the tags removed or have been in contact with the horses mouth cannot be returned for health & safety reasons.
