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 Mylers have designed an entire bitting system to effectively communicate with any horse at any level of training. Based on bitting a horse appropriately through his training, the system works by releasing points of pressure and using softer bits as the horse progresses. Because of the bit variations available, the system may seem complex, but it is quite simple. Each mouthpiece is coordinated to a horse’s training which is generalized into four levels. These levels serve as a guide to bit selection as you match horse and rider needs.

The Myler Level 3 Sweet Iron Ported Barrel Flat Shank is a stainless steel 7" Flat Shank with Sweet Iron Ported Barrel (MB 33, Level 3) Copper Inlay Mouth. This mouthpiece is made of polished Sweet Iron which naturally oxidizes or rusts. Harmless to horses, it has a sweet taste and promotes salivation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit that my horses love! I have owned this bit for several years and my horses love it. It is my go to bit for whatever I am doing. It has independant movement on each side, different from a correction bit to independently lift shoulders. The curve against tongue is milder than a correction bit as well. For trail riding or for competition, my horses are very happy in this bit and very responsive. For my more advanced training horses, when I think I am being more low key by using a snaffle for a trail ride, they don't the tongue pressure. Highly recommend. I am getting the black steel one to have two!
