6" Shank 3-Ring Combination Bit
MB 02 Comfort Snaffle Wide Barrel
The MB 02 is the Myler alternative to the traditional French link or lozenge mouthpiece commonly used in snaffle bits. The MB 02 rotates
onto the tongue, applying tongue pressure, but because the mouthpiece is curved, it wraps around the bars and lips instead of pinching. The
barrel in the center applies approximately the same pressure on the tongue as a traditional three-piece mouthpiece, however, the barrel
distributes the pressure more kindly and creates Independent Side Movement™. Sweet iron mouthpiece oxidizes and encourages salivation.
- Independent Side Movement™
- Sweet Iron mouthpiece
- Curved mouthpiece does not pinch lips and bars
- Copper Inlay
- Stainless Steel
The 6" stainless steel 3-ring combination bit is a hybrid of a ring bit, shank bit, and hackamore and uses five different pressure points to
disperse rein pressure. Because the noseband and chin strap are connected through the purchase, when the reins are engaged, the horse first
feels nose, chin and poll pressure before he feels the mouthpiece. The mouthpiece can slide 1" before reaching a stop, where it will then
engage and apply pressure. The purpose is to give the horse an opportunity to respond to the rider’s rein signals before applying mouthpiece
pressure. The combination bit has Independent Swivel Cheek and the purchase is slightly angled away from the cheek to prevent rubbing. The
noseband is flat leather with knotted cord on either side and the chin strap is synthetic to avoid stretching over time.
