How beautiful, I hope my mare fills out as nicely as your fella did. I am not a big fan of the single jointed bits either. Which myler are you trying? Sky listens well with the eggbutt even for turning we are working on bending her body a little bit teaching her what she is to do with leg. Plus I am concerned because in eventing their is only certain myler bits that you can use for dressage and I really hate having to switch bits I truly believe that I should be able to use the same bit for all three phases (at least in lower levels)
Yesterday I rode her and she just eats it up, she doesn't get worked up or frustrated i trotted her over ground poles, figure 8's transitions and she did great. I then handwalked her up the road and jumped a ditch, walked over a grated bridge, had dogs walk walk and she did marvelous, it's almost like she was born to be this kind of horse. super proud owner!!
