Myler Regular Flat Shank Bits
Myler Regular Flat Shank Bits. The Myler Regular Flat Shank is a fixed mouthpiece bit, with rings at either end of the shank.
The top ring is for the headstall and curb strap attachment; the bottom ring is for the reins. The lento metal below the mouthpiece is flat and bent at a slight angle towards the rider's hands. The top, or purchase, is angled away from the horse and the ring is squared.
Function: Shanks are leverage bits, and typically used with a curb strap or chain. Depending upon the mouthpiece used, backward and upward pressure on the reins transfers into downward pressure on the tongue and bars, downward pressure on the poll, pressure on the curb, and forward and downward pressure on the palate. The tops, or purchases, are bent away from the horse to prevent discomfort or rubbing. Myler purchase rings are squared so that both the headstall and curb strap stay in position with pinching or send an incorrect message.
Note: the longer the shank, the more leverage and the quicker the bit. Riders with overactive hands should be cautious of using long shanks.
