We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further 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 Level 2 Dee follows the Myler Bitting System to effectively communicate with any horse at any level of training.  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.

Favorite Features

  • Level 2 bits are appropriate for young or green horses just beginning training with a steady disposition.  Older horses who are just beginning training, training for a new discipline, or retraining after a long lapse.  Also for horses riding in a Level 1 mouthpiece and showing resistance

  • May offer Independent Side Movement™
  • Stainless Steel large Dee with Stainless Steel low port comfort snaffle (MB 04, Level 2) mouthpiece

    Myler Level 2 Dee is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Bit I bought this bit about a week ago for a young Arab mare. I've owned her for almost three years, and she's been tricky to work with. She would evade bit contact, she wouldn't turn, and she definitely wouldn't stop. I was able to rule it down to a bit issue (she went nearly perfectly in just a halter and reins, and she also has a very low palate), and thanks to the help of her old trainer, I was able to find this bit. We've only been on three rides with it, but she has accepted it really well. I'd recommend it for horses with sensitive mouths or those who dislike a lot of pressure centered on the tongue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tense and nervous to calm and relaxed My TWH is naturally very forward and on the hot side under saddle, and was nearly unrideable when I first got him. I didn't want to use the severe "walking horse bit" that the previous owner insisted I would need and initially put him in a simple grazing bit with a low port since he was used to a leverage bit. Unfortunately, he had been so badly abused with the high port and long shanks of the walker bit that he became tense as soon as I fastened the curb strap and would run right through the bit, ignoring my seat cues as well because he expected pain and wanted to get every ride over with as quickly as possible.The difference this bit (mine is the eggbutt version so I don't have the same issues others have experienced with the Dee, but I have a level 1 w/d-ring for my green mare and I've had no issues even though she has a fairly dainty muzzle) made for my poor boy was obvious and immediate. You could actually see the fear and tension melt away, and suddenly he remembered that he had brakes and first gear. He's been quite happy with it ever since and we both enjoy pleasant rides now. He waits until he's cued to gait or canter, which was all he would do in the leverage bit. He'll stretch his neck out and relax, and we ride mostly on the buckle these days, as he's learned to neck rein and pay attention to leg, seat and vocal cues now that he isn't worried about experiencing pain in his mouth and at the poll and under his chin. I know that training is more important than choice of bit, but I don't think he ever would have calmed down enough for me to be able to train him without what I have started calling a "wonder bit". I have a cooperative partner now and we've just started pole bending since he's so quick and, finally, responsive. He's doing great so far and really enjoys the workout. Most importantly my horse is happy, which was all I ever wanted.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice mouthpiece....problems with the huge D I bought this bit for a young horse who is heavy on the forehand. He is much more responsive in this bit. However, the D rings are huge and the horse has developed rubs between his mouth and the noseband, worse up close to the noseband. We don't have this problem with loose ring snaffles, 3 ring gag bits or anything else that provides a little lift. I've tried moving the position of the noseband, and it hasn't helped. He is rubbed raw on the side where he is a little heavier in the contact. I am disappointed because I really like his response in the mouth, but I can't keep making his face raw.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice bit Worked beautifully for my horse at first. He had gotten very prone to leaning heavily on his French link which is why I moved to the Myler but a couple weeks in and he's doing the same thing with this bit. I know that is more of an issue with my horse than the bit but disappointing all the same to be back where you started. Me and my trainer are going to make some adjustments with my hands before the final verdict is passed down. Overall bit is well made. I know several horses who go beautifully in this bit. The Ds are HUGE. Even through the bit fits very well the Ds look out of place on my horse's small muzzle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more llama head :) I bought this bit about two weeks ago after trying out my friend's Myler Level 2 Dee Ring on my own horse. He's an 11-year-old Appendix Quarter Horse gelding who jumped with previous owners and had developed what my trainer and I like to call a "llama head." Meaning that when I would ask him to collect and move out, his head would often rise above his withers and he'd resist the pressure on the bit. After switching to this bit though, my horse's head has come down significantly and while he still occasionally resists collecting up, he no longer imitates a llama when asked to use his hind end!
