    It really depends on your's and your horse's level of training. Though some categories overlap, training and skill levels correlate to the three levels of Myler Bits. The level 2 and 3 bits provide more tongue relief than the level 1.

    You may need to try out several different ones to see which one best suits your horse.

    This website: Myler English and Western Bits and Accessories will let you try the bit for 3 weeks for a small fee ($5.00 + shipping). I ordered my Myler from them; I didn't want to be out that much money if my horse didn't like it.

    Goodluck in your search!
