This mouthpiece is made of polished Sweet Iron which naturally oxidizes or rusts. Harmless to horses, it has a sweet taste and promotes salivation. This bit has a low port—for mild tongue relief—and a tall purchase/short shank; so while it offers leverage, it is very mild. This is an excellent transitional bit from snaffle to curb and the horse will hardly notice any difference. Great for the intermediate horse that may competing cross country eventing or be ridden one-handed on occasion but would otherwise go in a snaffle.
Please note that Myler sizing is larger than other brands
