Myler Full Cheek with Hooks - MB02
Full Cheek With Hooks
Stainless Steel with Copper Inlay Mouth
MB02 Mouthpiece (Low Port Comfort Snaffle with Independent Side Movement). The MB02 mouthpiece offers a slight (1/4") port which allows for more tongue relief than a MB01 Myler bit. This type of mouthpiece collapses to form a "U" instead of a "V" shape, protecting the lips and the bars of the mouth.
Independent Side Movement
The Barrel in the centre acts as a bushing, allowing each side of the bit to move independently of the other. When you lift one rein, only one side of the bit moves, giving the horse a very clear signal. This provides excellent should control as well as lateral flexion.
Modified Snaffle Cheeks = "Hooks"
The "hooks" are slots that keep the bridle fixed in place and create two rein positions. This bit does not have a lower hook, just one at the top of the cheek piece to attach the bridle cheek strap. By attaching your bridle cheek piece to the top hook, it applies a direct rein action
Offers tongue relief with either a small port or a flexible mouthpiece.
