Myler bits- as seen in commercials on RFDTV and DVD's

Has anyone purchased and used any of the myler bits? Im really interested in knowing how good of a bit they are. Judging by the commercials, they seem to be a good bit and easy on the mouth.

Thanks

I've heard lots of people say they like Myler bits. When I asked my trainer about them, it turned out she uses them on her horses and she let me try out a couple (level 1 and a level 2 D-ring snaffles) I didn't notice any real difference in the level 1, but did notice a small improvement in the level 2. I already use a nice bit on my horse (KK Ultra 2-Type) so I'm not dying to run out and buy another expensive bit, but if I ever come across a cheap level 2 I'd go for it

I have a myler but ride western. Love the bit! Tried many and when I started using the myler I felt a big difference in the horse I use it on. Wish they made 6.5" so I could get one for my mare, . This is the mouth I have.............

There are so many types of Mylers, and I feel that they are well made, very nice bits that eliminate the nutcracker action of normal jointed mouthpieces but still allow you with lots of options.

Remembering of course the level system. The idea behind that is to bump the horse up and get more tongue relief through the levels. Level 1 comfort snaffles are excellent for starting a colt in. Level 2 is a little more tongue relief and more palate pressure. Level 3 is for experienced horses, maximum tongue relief, and lots more palate pressure.

Really, just find what your horse likes. I am currently going to be showing my colt one handed in an S shank Level 2, my mare shows in a short shank level 2, the colt trains in a twisted Myler D ring level 1 and we have several other smooth level snaffles for training. I love the customizeable option a lot.

I start youngsters in a level 1 comfort. Have a few others hanging in my tack lockers too. I like the independence they offer, makes it pretty easy to clearly & lightly communicate what you are asking from a youngster.

I spent a fair amount of time talking mechanics with Dale several years ago and it made sense then, still makes sense now.

Yeah I really would like to offer my boy as much comfort as possible, like you said so I can easily and lightly communicate with them without being forceful and taking his focus off of me and onto the bit.

I really don't have alot of money to go buy a bit in each level, I was thinking of just trying the myler combination bit?? They said its the one that they use on colts to start them with the right pressure points.

I ride western too, so anything with like a D or O ring wouldnt really suit us either. Im no bit expert, but do you just buy each piece and put it together yourself??

Get hold of Rose at Big Horse Feed in Temecula, CA. She will special order it for you. She does carry an inventory of larger bits in both loose ring and driving shanks. She did have a trial bit program as well.

I've used Myler bits exclusively for the past 15 years. Just because your horse likes or dislikes one bit doesn't mean you will have the same results with the next one. It's a great lesson to go through multiple mouthpieces to measure the horse's response. It is expensive if you go out and buy them individually so try to find friends that use them. The mouthpiece I've gotten the best results with (the most # of horses improving with it) is the 04.
