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 Bitting System has proven effective for many riders, and the Level 2 Dee with Hooks might just be the answer for you and your horse.  This stainless steel large 3 3/4" Dee with hooks has a low port comfort snaffle (MB 04, Level 2) mouthpiece with copper inlay. Hooks offer leverage with direct action type bits. This feature rolls the mouthpiece forward and downward into the tongue and bars with rein pressure, encouraging the horse to break at the poll. Most traditional ring bits only apply backward pressure into the tongue and bars which can cause a horse to resist. The bit attaches to the headstall and reins with the rein or headstall going from the outside of the bit, through the slot and fastening. 

Favorite Features

  • Uses less tongue pressure and more bar pressure, with the mouthpiece rolling on the bars.
  • Applies pressure across the tongue versus more in the center.
  • May collapse into the bars

    Myler Level 2 Dee w/ Hooks is rated 4.5556 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate improvement I bought this bit for my 4 yr old OTTB after researching the mechanics of bit pressure on the tongue vs. bars, and found it to be an immediate improvement in how he accepts the bit and rein pressure. It also gives me the ability to lift his shoulders when necessary and lateral flexion is improved; he doesn't brace or pull against my hand as he did in other non-ported bits.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mild and comfortable My horse has a sensitive mouth and this bit did not pinch or hurt her. She is now more trusting with the bit and goes perfectly in it. Myler is a really good company!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horse hated it I purchased this Myler bit with some hesitation, as I've heard mixed reviews over the years. Knowing Smartpak is an excellent company I had little to lose. Nonetheless I hoped it would be a wonderful buy. My young horse, however, absolutely hated this bit. First of all, they all sit way too wide. Secondly there was no comfortable place in his mouth for him to hold it. If I used just a little contact, he braced against it. If I took up more contact, he got behind the bit to avoid the contact. He left me with no feel at all in my hands. He chewed and tossed it around in his mouth. I could not find a soft feel anywhere with this bit. After 3 tries or so I returned it to Smartpak and they graciously accepted it back. I will never buy a bit like this again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pony approved! I decided to purchase the Myler Level 2 Dee with Hooks after seeing how well my friends horse went in it and after how impressed I was when she loaned it to me.My gelding is a good guy for the most part but has his fussy moments (he's 5 and a tb). I had been riding him in my Myler Dr. Bristol until now. He's doing great in this bit-even while jumping where he tends to get strong in between jumps (where I was riding him in a eggbutt gag just to get him to listen). Just a gentle squeeze (put your hands in a fist and squeeze your ring fingers lightly) and he comes back to me willingly. He feels very relaxed underneath me and I feel that my hands are lighter. I love my Myler bits and even with the $90 pricetag I believe that this was a good investment for my gelding. One thing I do notice about the Mylers is they seem to run a little large and I've had several people remark on it too. I ordered the 5" to fit my gelding who is about a 5 1/4" mouth in my HS loosering and other bits. One of my other Myler bits is a 5 1/2" and fits like a 5 3/4".

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Myler Low Port Dee with Hooks My horse is comfortable in and goes well in this bit. I had tried a variety of bits and he seems to go in this one best. I was new to the notion of the hooks and curb chain on what looks sort of like a D-Ring snaffle (this type of bit is popular for AQHA) -- basically turns it into sort of a Kimberwicke like leverage bit, but am surprised how well my horse goes in it. I think the curved mouth is very comfortable for him.
