We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional discounts or promotions.

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'!).

Why We Love This

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.

The Myler Level 1 Loose Ring bit is intended for horses beginning training. The free-rotating barrel utilizes mostly tongue pressure.

Favorite Features

  • 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
  • Stainless Steel Loose Ring with Stainless Steel comfort snaffle wide barrel (MB 02, Level 1) Copper inlay mouth.

Made in the U.S.A.

    Myler Level 1 Loose Ring is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best bit I have ever used! I bought this bit about a month ago for my 11 year old Arabian mare. I wished I would have discovered the myler brand sooner! These bits are pricy but worth it. I use this one for a work bridle and the d ring with a curb chain for the show ring. This bit allows a lot more movement in the horse mouth. She has never been so steady or content with a bit before. I would highly suggest to everyone I know.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse seems happy with it Starting a 4-year old, my trainer said one issue he was dealing with was the horse really ducking out of being bridled (he was using a D-ring snaffle). This one he finds more acceptable to him - less dodging and ducking and he is calm when being ridden now. Nicely made, like the copper inlay.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Horse! I bought this bit for my horse because I had her with a trainer, and wasn't sure what she had been going in. She didn't like the first bit I tried, which was an older Myler version similar to this one. I decided to take a chance on it, and am so glad I did! She is much happier and now is willing to take contact without tossing her head. This bit is perfect for her.

    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.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
