Coming soon! Get notified when back in stock.
The Myler HBT Shank with Sweet Iron Low Port Comfort Snaffle (MB 04, Level 2) is ideal for young and green horses training their way through the Myler bitting system and who show resistance to more restrictive bits. When the reins are engaged, this mouthpiece will rotate fully on your horse's tongue but a slight port gives a little more relief than Myler Level 1 bits. This mild leverage bit can also be great when used transitionally from snaffle to curb bits.
The Basics:Sweet iron with copper inlay. Sweet iron will oxidize naturally over time and 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 mouthpieces generally give a more relief on the tongue and the curved mouthpiece collapses into a "U" shape to avoid pinching of the lips and bars. Ideal for a horse trained on the basics and working toward more bit freedom.
Benefits of an HBT Shank: HBT Shanks are curb bits with shorter purchases than flat shanks. They use a bit of leverage and ideal for trail riding as the short shank design makes for easy grazing.
Independent Side Movement: Entire shank moves independently from the mouthpiece which means more control and clearer communication between you and your horse.
