Opinions on Myler bits

Can you share, please? I'm especially wondering about something like

Myler Low Port Dee Horse Bit with Hooks MB 04 - Dover Saddlery.
(disregard the hooks, please)

I'm wondering what is the advantage/purpose of "independent side movement"? Is it a possibility horse may NOT like it?

P.S. Yes, I know Billy Allen bits are the same and cheaper, but I couldn't find the size I need.

There is the possibility your horse wouldnt like it but all the horses I've seen in them love them. The independent side movements are good when training a horse but also after they'be been trained to improve movement. You can lift one side of the horse with out interfering with the other side. Its almost kind of like using a double bridle in a way, it can help give more clear and definite signals to the horse

Thanks, Foxy! That sounds very promising. :)

They are absolutely worth the money invested :) I have sold many many Myler bits and I can honestly say I can't think of one person that hasn't fallen in love with the Myler brand.

Just to add - if you get a more common bit (say the comfort mouthpiece and a loosering or dee cheekpiece) you'll be able to sell it for nearly new price on Ebay if your horse absolutely hates it.

THAT is a Billy Allen style mouth piece in a wide port configuration. I love the bit and Foxy gave a good description of it's use.

We own several and have sold several Myler bits. I've gotten almost what I paid for them so you won't loose money. They are well made and hold up over time. I bought an Imus bit that I loved. I used it for a couple of years and its breaking down at a pinch point. Granted I only paid $60 or so for it but I can't use it anymore. The Mylers we have, have done heavy hard use for at least 6 years or more. They have more than paid for themselves.
That looks like a nice bit

If I could ask a side question here?

How would I decide which Myler bit to use?

Right now I use a snaffle bit if I use a bit at all. Other times I use a bitless bridle.

They used to have a questionnaire you could fill out not sure if its still on their site. The best bet would be to call and ask them. Here is the questionnaire. Personally, I would fill out the questionnaire then call them with it already filled out.
