Hey Redhawk!

When I was buying a Myler, saddleworld let me take whichever one on trial and switch between them until I found the one I wanted. You have to put a bit of a deposit (can't remember how much now) but it was well worth it. Do you have a saddleworld or horseland near you?

Actually I do! That's brilliant, thanks Wild-Spot! I will certainly going down to have alook. Although, say he doesn't like it, can I return it?

JDI - thanks for the advice! I'm assuming that the wider barrel would put more pressure on the tongue, whereas the smaller barrel is more similar to a french link, correct?

Someone may have said this, I'm lazy today so didn't read all the posts You should call the Myler people, they are very helpful and will be glad to get your horse in the right bit.

My thinking, RedHawk, is exactly what you said and a little bit more. The bean link you have on your bit right now is quite small, and if your horse likes that but you want to switch to a Myler, keeping that same proportion might be in your best interest. The barrel length will change how much pressure is put on the tongue as well as changing the breakover point (or... slight bendover point... Mylers don't have a break point... ) from the middle of the tongue to the sides of the tongue.. does that make sense?

Vida - I'm in Aus, so to call Myler might be a bit expensive, lol. But I'm sure the people at Horseland/Saddleworld would be able to help, so I'll definitely talk to them.

JDI - Yep, that all made sense. Thanks for all your help!!!

I'm not sure wether you can decide not to buy a myler at all... because I ended up buying one! But the system is great, you can try as many as you need... I think I tried 3?
