The Myler 7″ Flat Shank with a Ported Barrel Mouthpiece (MB 33) forms part of Myler’s Level 3 range and is considered one of the mildest options that they produce with respect to tongue pressure, focusing more on the horse’s bars, lips, chin and poll. These characteristics make it more suited to riders of great experience and horses that are trustworthy and obey commands well. The 7″ shank is produced from stainless steel and provides a moderate level of leverage. The mouthpiece is produced from polished sweet iron, which oxidizes when it comes into contact with moisture in the horse’s mouth, releasing a sweet taste. It also possesses a copper inlay placed on the interior section of the bars to encourage salivation. The 7/16″ bars feature a pronounced curve that facilitates swallowing and the 1.5″ low, medium wide port offers a great deal of tongue relief. This bit is available in the following sizes: 4.75″, 5″, 5.5″ and 6″.
This bit has been crafted according to the renowned Myler philosophy, incorporating a number of innovative features (such as their patented Independent Swivel Cheek Purchase) as well as ergonomic design elements to facilitate communication between horse and rider and minimize distractions that can hinder performance.
