Myler Bits

The creators of Myler Bits, Ron, Dale and Bob Myler, offer a philosophy behind each of their bits. They believe the bit is a communication tool, and to effectively communicate with your horse, he must be relaxed. If your horse is not relaxed, he can’t effectively receive your message and needs a different bit which lets him relax. The Mylers have designed an entire bitting system to effectively communicate with any horse at any level of training. The system works by releasing points of pressure and using softer bits as the horse progresses.

Myler Level 1 bits – Recommended for young or inexperienced horses that are just beginning training. The bits have slightly curved “U” shape mouthpieces that collapse slightly in the middle and rotate onto the tongue to apply pressure.

Myler Level 2 bits – Recommended for young or inexperienced horses with good temperaments, older horses just beginning training, or well-trained horses that are just starting out in the Myler Bitting System. Level 2 bits introduce the concept of tongue relief with either a small port or a flexible mouthpiece that provides room for the tongue to elevate for swallowing.

Myler Level 2 – 3 bits – Recommended for horses with basic training and good temperament and good self control, advanced horses that may be difficult to control at times, or horses that are being ridden in a Level 2 mouthpiece and showing bit resistance. Level 2-3 mouthpieces are ported to offer tongue relief with varying degrees of potential tongue pressure depending on the mouthpiece style.

Myler Level 3 bits – Recommended for performance horses with advanced training enough to be considered “finished” with a solid, trustworthy temperament, or a horse being ridden in a Level 2-3 bit and showing bit resistance with mild to no control issues. Level 3 bits have wider ports for maximum tongue relief with little to no tongue pressure. Level 3 bits use primarily bar, poll, and curb pressure.
