I bought this bit for my 10 year old daughter's Welsh Sec A pony, which, although well-schooled, can get excited when cantering and jumping. My daughter is tiny and not very strong. I have spent a fortune trying to find a bit that he would accept without snatching and sticking his tongue out. He has a sensitive mouth and a big tongue. He has had a lot of Parelli training and responds very well to nose pressure but tends to ignore the Parelli halter when excited. I would have tried a Parelli Cradle but they don't make it in a small enough size so I thought the Myler Short Shank Combination 04 was the next best thing. Result? Happy confident pony, no snatching (low port giving tongue relief?), happy confident child!

This is not a bit that I would have chosen BUT it comes very highly recommended by a friend who was the previous owner of the mare its intended for and, having used it with the mare once, know of its capabilities. This particular mare is strong, has a soft mouth and needs a bit that she will respect and this one is the very best on the market. My friend has a wealth of experience and knowledge in bits and bitting and I therefore deeply respect her judgement. Having done the research I now have to agree that Myler are, without question, the best bits on the market today - hence the reason I'm buying a second one [full04] for my 5 year old gelding. In my opinion these two bits will be money well spent
