Myler® Stainless Steel 5 1/2" MBL Short Shank, MB 04 Low Port Comfort Snaffle, Level 2. For Western disciplines. 

The MB 04 is similar to the MB 02 in that it will rotate on the tongue and apply tongue pressure, however, it has a small (1/4") port that introduces some tongue relief to the horse. 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. The sweet iron oxidizes and encourages salivation.

Key features:

  • Independent Side Movement™.
  • Sweet iron mouthpiece.
  • Curved mouthpiece does not pinch lips or bars.
  • Copper inlay.

The MB 04 provides an excellent 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 and need re-schooling.

The MBL Shank is a length of flat stainless steel curved slightly back towards the horse, with a teardrop purchase and a rein ring. The mouthpiece attaches loosely to the cheek with a small decorative stack that allows 1/8" of slide, just enough to allow more tongue relief. The purchase is angled slightly away from the cheek to avoid rubbing. The MBT has the patented Independent Swivel Cheek, where the purchase, mouthpiece and shank all move independently of each other.

The MBL is an indirect (curb) rein action designed to be used with a curb strap which attaches to the purchase. The MBL uses the combination of fixed cheek and fixed rein to apply pressure to the mouth, chin and poll. Recommended for use with ported mouthpieces.

Action: indirect.

Degree of leverage: mild.
