29045/47 Myler 04 Eggbutt Comfort Snaffle Low Port (Plain)
The MB 04 is similar to the MB 02 in that it will rotate on the tongue and apply tongue pressure, however it has a small (¼") port that introduces some tongue relief to the horse. The port allows the horse to swallow and move his tongue when he is moving forward and relaxed, which acts as a release or reward. The mouthpiece is curved, and it wraps around the bars and lips instead of pinching.
•Independent Side Movement
•Stainless Steel Mouthpiece
•Curved mouthpiece does not pinch lips and bars
•USEF 2012 and FEI 2016 Dressage Legal. Consult rulebook for more information.
Notes: The MB 04 provides an excellent transition from Level One to Level Two. It is suitable for a wide range of horses including green horses, experienced horses entering the Myler System, horses that have been ridden exclusively in a single-jointed mouthpiece, or horses that have not been ridden for a while needing re-schooling.
An eggbutt is a traditional cheek style which keeps the mouthpiece from draping on the tongue, providing a more direct signal than the loose ring. The straight side of eggbutt will not pull through the mouth and does not pinch. For a more versatile version, see the eggbutt with hooks.
Size: 3 ½" rounded ring
Discipline: English or Western
Average customer rating:
Nice lightweight bit, not completely different from the lozenge I was using previously but much more ergonomically designed for my TBx with a petite head and XL tongue. Have only used it once but the result was far greater acceptance of the bit from my fussy 5yo and better bending. Looking forward to using it in the future.
