Myler Black Steel Seven Shank Bits
Myler Black Steel Seven Shank Bits. Myler Black Steel offers a unique alternative to standard stainless steel bits.
The Myler Black Steel Seven Shank is decorated with stainless steel dots, a unique stacked brushing, and a round purchase. The shank is rounded instead of flat.
The top ring on the Myler Seven Shanks Bit is for the headstall and the curb strap attachment, while the lower ring is for the reins. Below the mouthpiece, the shank is flat and has a "7" shape at an angle toward the riders 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 without pinching or sending an incorrect message. The angled shank transfers less pressure than a straight shank. Also, the angled shank stays out of reach from a horse that may try to lift a shank with the lips.
