This Myler® Eggbutt with Hooks, MB 04 Low Port Comfort Snaffle is a Level 2 bit. The MB 04 mouth is similar to the MB 02 in that it will rotate on the tongue and apply tongue pressure. However, the small (¼") port introduces some tongue relief.

The port allows the horse to swallow and move his tongue when he is moving forward and relaxed, which acts as a release or reward. The mouthpiece is curved, and it wraps around the bars and lips instead of pinching.

Key features:

  • Independent Side Movement™.
  • Stainless steel mouthpiece.
  • Copper inlay.
  • 3 ½" rounded ring.

Notes: The MB 04 provides a transition from Level 1 to Level 2 in the Myler system. It is suitable for a wide range of horses, including green horses, experienced horses entering the Myler System, horses that have been ridden exclusively in a single-jointed mouthpiece or horses that have not been ridden for a while needing re-schooling.

The addition of the hooks to the cheek makes this a more versatile version of the eggbutt without hooks. Attaching the headstall to the top hook holds the bit in the correct position instead of allowing it to slide around the bridle cheeks. Attaching the reins to the rein hooks allows the rider to lift the cheek and use the Independent Side Movement of the mouthpiece.

Using the hooks does not add leverage but allows the rider to transition from a direct rein action to indirect action without changing the bit. Adding a curb strap (using a Myler curb strap kit) incorporates curb pressure. Curb pressure is recommended for ported mouthpieces.

The small loop behind the top slot accommodates a curb strap (attach with two curb hooks). Both the top bridle slot and bottom rein slot will fit standard ?" bridle leather.
