Does anyone use the Myler bit? I have a regular D-ring snaffle, sometimes he will fight it. Especially when backing, I think it pinches him. When I put in my trainers Myler bit you can notice a 100% difference. I went to the local tack shop and she ordered one for me. I'm very excited to get it in. I never really experimented with bits before, so I'm semi-hesitant/nervous. I've always used a D-ring, broken in the middle? Snaffle. I'm reading the book written by the Myler brothers and I think it's great!
When backing in my bit he trows his head and chomps, you can clearly see he doesn't feel comfortable. With the Myler bit he backs and actually drops his head. I don't believe in a "magic bit", but so far the Myler bit has worked the best. He's very responsive with both the bits, I don't want anything harsh, but anything too soft. Ahhhh, there is so much that go into bits.
Or does anyone know a knock-off brand? I suppose $90 isn't too bad for a bit, especially one I really see a difference in. I like the "level 2" Myler Low Port Dee Bit with Hooks MB 04 - Dover Saddlery.
