Myler Stainless Steel 5" HBT Shank
MB 04 Low Port Comfort Snaffle
The MB 04 is similar to the MB 02 in that it will rotate on the tongue and apply tongue pressure, however, it has a small (¼") port that
introduces some tongue relief to the horse. The port allows the horse to swallow and move his tongue when he is moving forward and relaxed,
which acts as a release or reward. The mouthpiece is curved, and it wraps around the bars and lips instead of pinching. Sweet iron
mouthpiece oxidizes and encourages salivation.
- Independent Side Movement
- Sweet Iron Mouthpiece
- Curved mouthpiece does not pinch lips and bars
- Copper Inlay
Notes: The MB 04 provides an excellent transition from Level One to Level Two. It is suitable for a wide range of horses including green
horses, experienced horses entering the Myler System, horses that have been ridden exclusively in a single-jointed mouthpiece, or horses
that have not been ridden for a while needing re-schooling.
The 5" HBT shank is stainless steel and slightly curved back, with a flat-top purchase and a rein ring. The mouthpiece has a fixed
attachment. The HBT shank has the patented Independent Swivel Cheek, where the purchase, mouthpiece and shank all move independently of each
other. The purchase is slightly angled away from the cheek to avoid rubbing. It has an indirect (curb) rein action designed to be used with a
curb strap which attaches to the purchase. The HBT shank uses the combination of the fixed cheek and fixed rein to apply pressure to the
mouth, chin and poll.
Degree of Leverage: Mild
Notes: The HBT is well suited to trail riding as the shorter shank makes grazing easier for the horse.
