Myler Level 1 Loose Ring
Buying My Second one!
My trainer swears by these bits and uses almost all of her horses in them. I use this bit for both dressage, XC, and SJ for my mare and she is very happy in it.

Good bit for fleshy mouths
I've tried well over a dozen different bits for my OTTB, and finally decided to try the pricier Myler. His regular bit is a thick double-jointed, oval lozenge snaffle, and although he was making progress in accepting contact, he still wasn't happy in the bridle. The first ride in the Myler went okay--I didn't see a miracle transformation, but he seemed quieter. The second ride went even better, and I noticed I was able to maintain more even connection. For the third ride, I went back to his original bit to see if the change was a fluke, and I couldn't believe the difference. He kept trying to open his mouth and spit out the bit, so I'm keeping the Myler and will make the change for his other bridles. It's a good try for horses with smaller palate clearance and fleshy tongues.

Great bit for the greenie
I use this bit on both of my horses and I really like it. I use mine with a Micklem bridle so I never have to worry about it sliding. I like using it with my green horses as I think that it is nice for them to have something to play with and I like that there is no "nutcracker" effect with the Myler bits.

This bit is great for green horses with the smaller mouth and a large tongue. Acceptance was no sweat.

Effective and widely accepted bit
I have been using this particular style of bit for about 3 years now as my trainer is a fan. I am just buying a new horse this year, however, and since he "came" with one of these in his bridle, I admit I thought I'd try a few different bits to see if he had a preference or went differently. (he needed a smaller bit anyway). Well, he was quite firm about wanting to be in this bit over my other choices. Just quieter, less fussy, easier to get him round and through, etc. I think he felt "safer" in this bit. I tried my KK Aurigan 3 piece snaffle as an alternate, nope, he preferred the Mylar. OK, the horse has voted.

My mare seems to really like this bit. She tends to be a puller and I've had success with a Waterford for cross country and showjumping but this is lovely for the dressage phase!
