Myler® Stainless Steel 7" Flat Shank, MB 16PB Wide Ported Barrel, Level 3 for Western disciplines.

The MB 16PB has a generously wide and moderately high port that allows plenty of room for the horse’s tongue to pass under the bit, more so than the MB 33. Although the port is 1 7/8", its generous width makes the mouthpiece sit very low in the mouth, minimizing the likelihood of any palate pressure. Sweet iron oxidizes and encourages salivation.

Key features:

Independent Side Movement™.
Curved mouthpiece.
Sweet iron mouthpiece.
Copper inlay.


  • For slightly less tongue relief, see the MB 33 or MB 05.
  • For the same tongue relief without Independent Side Movement, see the MB 16.

The 7" Flat Shank is stainless steel and curved slightly back towards the horse, with a flat-top purchase and a rein ring. The mouthpiece has a fixed attachment. The Flat Shank has the patented Independent Swivel Cheek, where the purchase, mouthpiece and shank all move independently of each other. The purchase is slightly angled away from the cheek to avoid rubbing. It has an indirect (curb) rein action designed to be used with a curb strap which attaches to the purchase. The flat shank uses the combination of the fixed cheek and fixed rein to apply pressure to the mouth, chin and poll.

Action: Indirect.

Degree of leverage: moderate.
