The Myler Western Dee with Hooks MB02 is 3" circular ring with a fixed attachment of the mouthpiece and top and bottom rings ("hooks") for headstall and rein attachment. There is direct rein action when the rein hook is not used. When the rein is fixed on the rein hook it is indirect action. It is used primarily in Western riding disciplines.
The addition of the hooks to the cheek make this a more versatile bit. When the headstall is attached to the top hook, it holds the bit in the correct position instead of allowing it to slide around the bridle cheeks. Attaching the reins to the rein hooks allows the rider to lift the cheek and use the Independent Side Movement of the mouthpiece (if available). Using the hooks does not add leverage. This cheekpiece does offer the ability to attach a curb chain or strap.
