Stainless Steel Dee with Hooks
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™.
- Independent Side Movement™
- Stainless Steel mouthpiece
- Curved mouthpiece does not pinch lips and bars
- Copper Inlay
- NOT Dressage Legal
The dee with hooks is a stainless steel "D" shaped ring with fixed attachment of the mouthpiece, as well as slots (“hooks”) at the top and
bottom of the ring for bridle and rein attachment. The small loop behind the top slot accommodates a curb strap (attach with two curb
hooks). Both the top bridle slot and bottom rein slot on the standard and medium dee will fit standard ⅝" bridle leather. The slots on the
pony dee will fit ¾" bridle leather.
The hooks make this a much more versatile version of the dee without hooks. Attaching the headstall to the top hook holds the bit in the
correct position instead of allowing it to slide around the bridle cheek pieces. Attaching the reins to the rein hooks allow the rider to
lift the cheek and use the Independent Side Movement™ of the mouthpiece. Using the hooks does not add leverage but allows the rider to
transition from a direct rein action to indirect action without changing the bit. Adding a curb strap (using a Myler curb strap kit)
incorporates curb pressure. Curb pressure is recommended for ported mouthpieces.
Action: Direct rein action when reins are not attached through rein hook. Indirect rein action when rein is fixed on rein hook.
Size: 3 3/4" dee on 5" and 5 1/2" mouthpieces, 3" dee on 4 3/4" mouthpiece
Discipline: Primarily English
Degree of Leverage: Little to no leverage when the hooks are used
