I would love to try the Myler combo on my 3 yr old gelding. He does "okay" in a bit and pretty decent in a mechanical hackamore (not my first choice but he neck reins in it) and I'm thinking that the combo bit would be the best of both worlds! It's just too bad I'm not made of money.
I guess what I'm posting about is the mouthpiece. It seems pretty unanamous that the 04 is a good mouthpiece. Has anyone used a #36 titled port on a young horse before? His momma rides great in that and I have been thinking of trying him with it. My favorite Myler is the #33 but I don't think that is meant for colts. I still might try him in it just because I have one, but I think you are supposed to work up to total tongue relief. I guess I am just curious about other Myler fan's opinions of the 04 mouthpiece compared to the ones I have tried.....the 36 and the 33. Oh, and I have also tried the 03 and neither of my older horses liked it. I guess they really like a port. I need to try that on the youngster as well.
Anyway, I am a BIG Myler fan. Since I have discovered them they are my favorite bits, hands down! I would really love to try one of those combos, especially for my 3 yr old, since he is sort of okay in a bit and sort of okay in a hackamore. I would think the combination would be perfect for him.
