Myler Stainless Steel 50mm Bridoon Ring, MB 02 Comfort Snaffle with Wide Barrel, Level 1
The MB 02 is the Myler alternative to the traditional French link or lozenge mouthpiece commonly used in snaffle bits. The MB 02 rotates onto the tongue, applying tongue pressure, but because the mouthpiece is curved, it wraps around the bars and lips instead of pinching. The barrel in the center applies approximately the same pressure on the tongue as a traditional three-piece mouthpiece, however, the barrel distributes the pressure more kindly and creates Independent Side Movement™.
- Independent Side Movement
- Stainless Steel Mouthpiece
- Curved mouthpiece does not pinch lips and bars
- Copper Inlay
- USEF and FEI Dressage Legal 2017. Consult rulebook for more information.
Notes: Similar to the MB 01, but the center barrel of the MB 02 is wider which distributes pressure on the tongue over a larger surface. For more tongue relief, step up to the MB 04.
The Bridoon ring is a small version of the simple stainless steel "O" ring, where both the bridle and mouthpiece have no fixed point of attachment but slide freely around the ring, meant to be used in conjunction with a weymouth in a double bridle. The loose ring allows a lot of play as the mouthpiece slides freely around the ring.
Size: 50mm ring
Discipline: English, specifically designed to be used in the double bridle with a Weymouth
Notes: The loose ring is generally considered one of the most non-interfering cheek pieces because the mouthpiece slides freely around the ring. However the play in the mouthpiece can make it difficult for a horse to find your hands as the mouthpiece is in continual motion. The movement of the mouthpiece can also exaggerate or create a busy mouth in young or anxious horses. It is best suited for more advanced horses fully schooled in leg and seat aids as well as rein aids.
