Myler Bits

Experience the Difference That a Comfortable Bit Can Make for Your Horse
The creators of Myler BitsŪ, Ron, Dale and Bob Myler, offer a philosophy of comfort for the horse with each of their bits. The bit is a communication tool, and to effectively communicate with your horse, he must be relaxed. If your horse is resistant, he is not effectively receiving your message and needs a different bit which allows him to relax.
The Myler bitting system is designed around the concept of tongue relief. In a traditional single jointed bit, when pressure is applied to the reins it creates a "nutcracker" effect, by collapsing onto the tongue, which makes it difficult for the horse to swallow. When a horse is unable to swallow, they are unable to move forward in a relaxed and comfortable frame.
Recognize the Signs of Resistance
Going behind the bit
Going above the bit (inversion)
Chewing, overactive mouth, tongue outside of the mouth
Running through the bit, pulling, or not stopping
Heavy on the forehand, leaning on the bit
Putting tongue over the bit
Sucking tongue into the back of the throat
If your horse exhibits these symptoms, and all dental and medical reasons have been eliminated, try a Myler Bit.
