As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The Myler Bitting System is a graduated system, meaning that as your horse learns and progresses through his training, you will change the way you communicate with him by re-bitting him periodically. Each Myler Bit is designed to use select pressure points for the best communication for that Level.

Level 1

  • Feature curved mouthpiece that allows horse to swallow.
  • Uses tongue pressure and bar pressure - working mostly off of the tongue. Myler Bits® distribute tongue pressure more evenly than traditional designs 
  • Uses restrict and release action
  • May offer curb or poll pressure depending on cheek or shank design
  • May offer Independent Side Movement™
  • Stainless Steel Loose Ring with Stainless Steel comfort snaffle wide barrel (MB 02, Level 1) Copper inlay mouth.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Response I purchased this bit for my green draft cross mare when she decided that she no longer liked the bit she had been broke in and using for the past 2 years (a copper linked french-link eggbutt). The dentist recommended a Myler due to her fleshy mouth and a relatively small space between her jaws. She has responded well to the change and is more willing for bridling. I haven't noticed a difference in her actual response time while riding, but she was always very sensitive to the aids and goes more off of seat than hands. My only problem with this bit is that it pulls through her mouth with very little one-sided pressure. I had to get a western curb strap to help keep it in place. Also, I would have preferred to NOT get a loose ring, but there was no other option (anywhere!) for this mouthpiece in a 6". Although, Myler has attempted to smooth out the connection of the mouthpiece with the ring to reduce the incidence of pinching.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bit The Myler Bitting System has a lot going for it. My horse responded well to the curvature of the bit and roller. I am not completely sure that it alone has helped with keeping his tongue in his mouth but there is definitely a difference.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
