The Myler Flat Shank with Sweet Iron Correctional Low Ported Barrel (MB 27PB, Level 2-3) serves as a great alternative to a standard 3-part mouthpiece traditionally used on Flat Shanks. Ideal for a horse with moderate to advanced training but who still might need some correctional tongue pressure from the bit. This flat shank is made from sweet iron and the mouthpiece has a low ported barrel that allows room for the tongue but the center barrel will roll on your horse's tongue to apply two points of pressure when the reins are engaged.
- The Basics: Sweet iron with copper inlay. Sweet iron will oxidize naturally over time, is harmless to horses, and its sweet taste encourages salivation.
- Level Up: Myler's unique "level" system means there's a bit for your horse no matter their training. Level 2-3 bit offer precise control through ported mouthpieces that relieve your horse's tongue, however there will still be some degree of pressure for correction. Ideal for moderately experienced horses.
- Benefits of a Flat Shank: Flat shanks are curb bits that require less contact than other bits. They are well-suited for advanced, dexterous riders who use soft hands with horses who respond well to light bit pressure.
- Independent Side Movement: Entire shank moves independently from the mouthpiece which means more control and clearer communication between you and your horse.
