I have tried 1, 2 and 3 levels in the myler. My horses went well in them but I found that I didnt get anything more out of my horse and she liked the Imus better so never purchased. She had a D ring snaffle with the cylinder like (sorry no technicaly here) connected string that goes across the mouth. She also has the D ring twisted snaffle level 3 I believe...that isnt a myler but was really expensive...I found it more severe than I needed and not to my liking.

Hope that helps some.

IMO if you like this type of bit look at the Mylers. They are not cheap but are very well made.

Your absolutly correct. There have been some issues witht he B.I. bit breaking in the middle during useage. I do not know if this issue has been cleared up or not, I have not enquired. This bit could just as well be used in a QH an Arab (smaller size of course).

The curvature in the mouthpeice of the bit should not impede upon the pallete at all regardless how shallow it least its not supposed to be designed that way. Its beena while since I have looked at the B.I. bit but if my memory serves me well the curvature is only about 1/2 inch forward. Mylers are well made bits with excellent balance......they have been a little out of my price range unless I got them used.

I love mine. I have the curb with the training snaffle rings attached for my gaited horse.

I've heard that Brenda copied her idea from Robart's pinchless Walking Horse bit. They look really similar and I think they cost about the same.

I use both Imus bits on my horses (TWH) and they seem quite happy in them. I also ride in her Imus saddle, I don't care if there is no such thing as a gaited saddle, this saddle is so comfy, light, and it fits my mare like a glove. It has pretty much fit every walker I have thrown it on.

I would highly recommend these bits.

I use it, my horse loves it, but each horse is different, remember that rhere is really no gaited bit or gaited saddle.
