Myler Correctional Dee w/Hooks and Low Port
The Myler Stainless Steel Dee Correctional Low Ported Barrel bit with Hooks has been designed for horses in basic training with a good disposition and self-control who can handle more tongue relief or those in advanced training with a challenging disposition whether it be anxious, aggressive or fearful.
- Mouthpiece: MB 27PB (high ported barrel for more tongue relief, possible palate pressure)
- Metal type: Stainless Steel with Copper inlay
- Level 2-3 bits are ported to offer more tongue relief than level 1 or 2 bits .
These bits are available in either a correctional mouthpiece that applies some tongue pressure or curb mouthpieces that apply little tongue pressure. Instead, the level 2-3 uses more bar, poll and chin pressure with a curve to the mouthpiece that allows more room for the tongue to prevent resistance.
Resistance is the horse's way of communicating discomfort. A horse may demonstrate resistance through one or more behaviors that are consistently repeated in relation to the bit. Recognizing the signs of resistance is critical to knowing when there is a problem. Some of these signs include:
- Going behind or above the bit
- Chewing, overactive mouth, tongue out of the mouth
Myler bits have many unique features which allow your horse to work without resistance:
Independent Side Movement: Many Myler bits have a barrel in the center of the mouthpiece that acts as a bushing, allowing each side of the bit to move independently of the other.
Curved Mouthpiece: Myler mouthpieces have a distinctive curve. The curve creates more room for the tongue to pass under the bit so the horse can swallow more freely as opposed to a bit that goes straight across the mouth.
Mouthpiece Thickness: Most Myler mouthpieces are 7/16" thick (11.11mm), a thickness that allows the bit to fit comfortably in the horse's mouth.
Mouthpiece Metals: Myler Western bits, combination bits and cradle bits are made of sweet iron with copper inlay. Sweet Iron oxidizes when exposed to moisture, releasing sweet taste. The sweet iron mouthpiece will turn grey after a few uses.
Hooks: Myler Snaffle cheeks have been modified with a unique feature called "hooks". The hooks are actually slots (on English Dee and Eggbutt styles) or rings (on western and combination bits) that keep the bridle fixed in place and create two rein positions. If the rider attaches the reins directly to the ring instead of the rein hook, it creates the standard direct rein action. If the rider attaches the reins to the rein hook or ring, the rider can use the rein to lift the cheek and use the independent side movement feature of the mouthpiece. The ratio of the shank to the purchase remains 1:1 so there is little to no increase in leverage or force applied to the mouth. The English dee and eggbutt additionally offer a hole on top of each cheek that allows the rider to attach a curb chain using quick links.
