The Ported Barrel Mouth Piece (MB 33)
Design: Curved mouthpiece with upward curve and joined barrel in centre.
Function: Puts downwards
pressure on top of bars, does not collapse on the bars and has no tongue
pressure. Each side of the mouthpiece moves independantly. With a low
palate, may exert some palate pressure. Turns into a solid mouthpiece
when asking for a stop. Offers tongue relief.
Usage/Solution for: A mild bit,
the Myler Ported Barrel mouthpiece works well with the intermediate
and finished horse. The independent side movement allows the rider to
isolate one side and pick up a shoulder. It is a good bit for a stiff
horse with little bend, or the horse which gets behind the bridle.
