The Myler Bit
The Myler bit - I have renamed the miracle bit. Having ridden mostly bitless in the last 10 years, my bit knowledge did not extend much pass snaffle, french link and tom thumb. Having accquired a horse who had bit issues, and was too strong to go into a bitless, I found myself in this endless search for a bit which would work. Then, the myler came to the rescue. Not only did it provide the softness I needed in the bit, but also the brakes which I needed too. No longer was he running through the bit, fighting the bit or popping his head up and opening his mouth to avoid the bit pressure all together. I have educated myself in bit 101 and have multiple horses going beautifully in the myler, whether they are in training or a seasoned professional.
