Mouth Piece (for the horse)Design: Curved mouthpiece with low ported center barrel. Function: Puts pressure on the tongue and the corners of the bars.  Collapses slightly on the lips.  Will not pinch bars or tongue.  No palate pressure.  Offers some tongue relief before restricting tongue.  Each side of the mouthpiece moves independently. Level: Two Usage/Solution for: The Myler Low Port Comfort Snaffle is a good choice for a beginning or intermediate horse.  Working off the lips, bars and tongue, it encourages the horse to relax at the poll by offering tongue relief before restricting the tongue.  Independent Side Movement allows rider to isolate one side and lift a shoulder.  A good alternative to the traditional snaffle, the MB04 works well for bending, Balancing and encouraging a horse to relax at the poll. Cheek piece (for the rider) A "D" shaped ring with fixed attachment of the mouthpiece and slots at top and bottom of ring for headstall and rein attachment.  Small hole at top of ring for curb chain hooks. Leverage action when pressure is exerted on the  reins, the mouthpiece rolls downward and backward in the mouth and pressure is applied to the poll via the headstall.  When rein is released, keeps mouthpiece upright, instead of resting on the tongue.  Allows rider to use less pressure than traditional ring bit.  Very encouraging for horse to relax at poll.  Side of Eggbutt will not pull through mouth and does not pinch. Fitting Bits: 1. Remove drop or flash noseband. With Combinations also remove the Caveson. 2. The bit should sit so that only 1 soft wrinkle appears in the corners of the mouth. 3. There should be about 1/2cm each side of the bit (Not too snug) 4. Bits with Hooks – the reins and cheekpieces of the bridle should pass through the hooks on the outside of the ring so that the leather is not against the face. 5. Attaching curb chains – the curb chains for the bits with hooks sit higher than on a double bridle, Pelham etc. (they sit roughly where the caveson would be). The chain should be initially adjusted so that two fingers can be inserted in the space. Some horses work better if the chain is tighter than this. 6. Combination bits – The noseband of the combination should be adjusted tight enough so that it sits horizontal and will not drop down and affect the breathing. Care should be taken to check this from time to time as the leather will stretch. There should be enough slack so that the noseband will release when the rider gives the hand.
