Myler Black Seven Shank with Sweet Iron Comfort Snaffle with Copper Roller MB 03
Level 1 Bit: Great for horses at the beginning of their training
who need clear and direct signals using tongue pressure
Often considered a Myler equivalent to the traditional mullen
mouthpiece, the innovate design of this bit allows for independent movement of each
side of the shank for better communication between horse and rider.
The purchase is angled slightly away from the horse to avoid rubbing
while the slight port provides tongue relief and allows the horse to
swallow comfortably. With the seven shank that creates indirect
pressure, it is designed to be used with a curb strap that is to be
attached to the purchase (curb straps can be found here)
The combination of fixed cheek and rein
attachments allows the seven shank to apply pressure to the mouth, chin,
This mouthpiece is made of
polished Sweet Iron which naturally oxidizes or rusts. Harmless to horses, it
has a sweet taste and promotes salivation. Black shank will discolor
over time to an antique brown with its decorative stainless steel dots for a complete show worthy look.
