30045/47 Myler 04 Eggbutt With Hooks Comfort Snaffle Low Port

Description

Stainless Steel Eggbutt with Hooks, MB 04 Low Port Comfort Snaffle, Level 2

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
•Copper Inlay
•NOT Dressage Legal

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.

The addition of the hooks to the cheek make this a more versatile version of the eggbutt without hooks, attaching the headstall to the top hook holds the bit in the correct position instead of allowing it to slide around the bridle cheeks. Attaching the reins to the rein hooks allows the rider to lift the cheek and use the Independent Side Movement™ of the mouthpiece (if available), using the hooks does not add leverage but allows the rider to transition from a direct rein action to indirect action without changing the bit. Adding a curb strap (using a Myler curb strap kit) incorporates curb pressure. Curb pressure is recommended for ported mouthpieces.

The small loop behind the top slot accommodates a curb strap (attach with two curb hooks). Both the top bridle slot and bottom rein slot will fit standard ⅝" bridle leather.

Size: 3 ½" rounded ring

Action: Direct rein action when rein hook is not used. Indirect rein action when rein is fixed on rein hook.

Discipline: English or Western

Degree of Leverage: Little to no leverage when the hooks are used.
 

Customer Reviews

Average customer rating:

I have this bit on my 15.1 Irish light weight cob and find it excellent. It gives him plenty of tongue room and stopped him leaning. He rides beautifully in it and is a regular winner at Working Hunter.
