Myler Level 2 Dee
great bit for pullers/ heavy on the forehand horse
After trying every type of snaffle (D ring and full cheek corkscrews, slow twists, twisted wire, etc.) and a waterford on my OTTB, who is a saint on the flat but gets heavy on the forehand jumping, I knew i needed to try something different. After riding on the flat for a few days first working on transitions, getting her used to this new bit, I was very happy to find her more responsive over fences without the usual tug-of-war to control her that we had been encountering over the past few months. It's the perfect bit for this horse. Took her to a show this past weekend and used it, and it was just what we needed for the over-fences classes. It was almost too much for the flat classes, however (lifting her head on downward transitions, though that might be just her nerves - she's very green still, and it was her first show in this very scary arena.)

Love this bit!
I bought this bit for my new dressage horse since it is now legal to use in dressage shows. My Danish Warmblood gelding was very heavy in the bridle, sticking his tongue out a lot, and dragging me around the ring. After getting this bit, he is more respectful of my restraining aids and I feel like I have control of him. He sticks his tongue out much less in this bit and is happy overall. This bit has made my riding much more enjoyable. I love it!

Love myler bits!
I have been using the level 1 2-ring combo bit and moved into the level 2. Tried it on my 17yr old TB last night and was very impressed. Complete different response from a jointed snaffle. He was soft in my hands, not bracey, eager to work and bend, was soft in the poll and in his body. I have decided to sell all my other bits and exclusively use Myler for my horses. I have a few other Mylers and although pricey - I have never been disappointed and more importantly - my horses just plain respond better and are calmer. And now that USDF has approved their use - why not!

Love this bit, helps especially for my horse who likes to drop his shoulder on turns. He really listens in it and is soft and responsive. Love this bit- hesistant to buy because of the price, but well worth the money, so glad I bought it.

Did not work with my horse
I found with both my horses that the cheaper Kimberwick bits with wither a snaffle mouth or a tiny port work better.

Nice Dressage Bit
I upgraded to this bit from the Myler Level One. I wanted to try this bit because of the tongue relief. I also ordered it in 5 1/2". It took my horse about a week to adapt and it works well. My only gripe is that the Myler bits are pricey.
