Myler Stainless Steel 3 3/4" Dee with Hooks, MB 09 Single Joint, Level 1
The MB 09 is a more comfortable Myler version of the traditional single-jointed mouthpiece. Although it lacks the benefits of a true Myler mouthpiece, it has a distinctive curve so the bars of the bit wrap around the horses bar and lips which make the bit more comfortable.
NO Independent Side Movement
Stainless Steel Mouthpiece

The dee with hooks is a stainless steel "D" shaped ring with fixed attachment of the mouthpiece, as well as slots (hooks) at the top and bottom of the ring for bridle and rein attachment. The small loop behind the top slot accommodates a curb strap (attach with two curb hooks). Both the top bridle slot and bottom rein slot on the standard and medium dee will fit standard ?" bridle leather. The slots on the pony dee will fit " bridle leather.
The hooks make this a much more versatile version of the dee without hooks. Attaching the headstall to the top hook holds the bit in the correct position instead of allowing it to slide around the bridle cheek pieces. Attaching the reins to the rein hooks allow the rider to lift the cheek and use the Independent Side Movement of the mouthpiece. Using the hooks does not add leverage but allows the rider to transition from a direct rein action to indirect action without changing the bit. Adding a curb strap (using a Myler curb strap kit) incorporates curb pressure. Curb pressure is recommended for ported mouthpieces.
