Myler Stainless Steel 7" Flat Shank
MB 47PB Correctional Ported Barrel
The 47PB is a correctional mouthpiece, a ported mouthpiece that collapses on to the outer lip and bars, and rotates on to the tongue. The
port is narrower than a Level 3 mouthpiece, but offers plenty of room for the horse’s tongue to pass under the bit. The angles of the port
are rounded, so when the bit collapses and applies two points of pressure on the tongue, the pressure is mild. The port on this mouthpiece
is 1 ⅞" high, so it will apply some palate pressure. Sweet Iron mouthpiece oxidizes and encourages salivation.
- Independent Side Movement
- Sweet Iron mouthpiece
- Curved mouthpiece does not pinch lips or bars
- Copper Inlay
Notes: A horse with a thicker tongue or lower palate will feel more palate pressure. This mouthpiece is the correctional version of the MB
43HP and is identical to the MB 47, but with the added benefit of Independent Side Movement. For increased tongue pressure and same palate
pressure, see the MB 27PB or MB 27PB HP. For more tongue relief with same palate pressure, see the 43HP. For less tongue pressure and little
to no palate pressure, see the MB 43LP or MB 43MP. For the same mouthpiece but without Independent Side Movement, see the MB 47.
The 7" Flat Shank is stainless steel and curved slightly back towards the horse, with a flat-top purchase and a rein ring. The mouthpiece
has a fixed attachment. The Flat 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 flat shank uses the combination of the fixed cheek and fixed rein
to apply pressure to the mouth, chin and poll.
Degree of Leverage: Moderate
