Myler Sweet Iron Western Flat Shank with Forward Tilt Ported Barrel and Copper Inlay is a Level 2-3 Stainless Steel Bit; these bits offer some tongue relief; some tongue pressure; more bar pressure and may be some palate pressure.

Level 2-3 Bits are for:

  • Horses at Level 2 with a good mindset that can benefit from more tongue relief
  • Horses at Level 3 with advanced skills but require more control.

    Bit features:

  • Curved mouthpiece permits the horse to swallow more easily, encouraging relaxation. Many traditional bits lie flat on the horse's tongue, restricting swallowing, often leading to resistance. With curved mouthpieces, Myler Bits distribute pressure more evenly across the tongue.
  • Mouthpiece metal is sweet iron metal with small strips of copper inlay which encourages salivation. Sweet iron metal is a strong metal with a sweet taste as it slowly oxidizes; encourages horse to salivate, creating a softer mouth. The mouthpiece will change color as it oxidizes.
  • Independent side movement within the mouthpiece allows a rider to isolate one side of the bit. A rider can choose to affect only one side, assisting in lifting a shoulder or for balancing, bending and collection. A traditional bit does not offer this movement.
  • Standard mouthpiece: 7/16" thick
  • Shank size: 7"
  • Mouth size: 5" only

    The Myler Bitting System (designed around Levels 1, 2, 2-3 and 3) is based on the concept of tongue relief. The most common traditional bit, the jointed mouthpiece, applies constant pressure by collapsing on the tongue and inhibiting the horse's ability to swallow. If the horse can't swallow properly, he can't move forward relaxed. The unique designs of Myler Bits offer varying degrees of tongue relief for the horse depending on level of training and disposition.

    Take into account your discipline and go with the level that fits. Though some categories overlap, training and skill levels correlate to the three levels of Myler Bits, all of them suitable for both Western and English riding. Please Note: If you compete, check with your sport's governing body to confirm which bits are legal for your particular event.
