Myler Stainless Steel 50mm Bridoon, MB 06 Mullen with Low Ported Barrel, Level 2-3
The MB 06 is a Myler alternative to the traditional mullen, but it has a wide low port that allows the tongue to pass under it comfortably. The port is ¾" high, just enough to allow the horse’s tongue to elevate slightly and swallow, but not high enough for palate pressure. When the reins are engaged, the 06 applies pressure primarily to the bars and lips.
- Independent Side Movement
- Stainless Steel Mouthpiece
- Curved mouthpiece does not pinch lips and bars
- Copper Inlay
- USEF 2017 and FEI 2017 Dressage Legal. Consult rulebook for more information.
Notes: This mouthpiece is a step up in tongue relief from Level 2, but because the port is low, it does not offer as much tongue relief as other Level 2-3 mouthpieces with slightly higher ports because the tongue is still somewhat restricted. The MB 36 mouthpiece will offer more tongue relief than the MB 06 when the reins are relaxed, but more tongue pressure when the reins are engaged.
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 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.
