Welcome to a bit that will make your riding experience easier. The Myler 2-ring combination bit combines the features of a ring bit, shank bit, and hackamore to create a sophisticated training and riding tool. This bit features 3 ring cheekpieces and a 5 inch comfort snaffle wide barrel mouthpiece. The mouthpiece is made of sweet iron with copper inlay which naturally oxidizes or rusts. Harmless to horses, it has a sweet taste and promotes salivation. Now comes with black leather noseband and synthetic black curb strap (not as pictured).
The noseband and chin strap connect through the purchase, synchronizing pressure to the nose, chin, and poll before the mouthpiece engages. If the horse does not respond to the pressure on the nose, chin, and poll, the mouthpiece slides, giving him another warning. If he ignores the mouthpiece, it will hit the stop, causing it to engage. The horse has three opportunities to respond to the rider's rein pressure before the mouthpiece is engaged. If the horse respects the first pressure, he can stay on the bit without any tongue pressure or interference with swallowing. This bit can be used for a wide variety of horses and disciplines, as a training tool to start young horses, rehabilitating problem horses, or retraining experienced horses in a new sport.
