Myler Stainless Steel Kimberwick, MB 43LP Narrow Low Ported Barrel, Level 2-3
The MB 43LP does not rotate on to the tongue, but instead sits solidly across the bars and lips of the horse’s mouth. The port is narrower than a Level 3 mouthpiece, but still offers room for the horse’s tongue to pass under the bit. Because the port is narrow, when the reins are engaged, the horse will feel a slight pressure on the outside edges of the tongue — a gentle reminder rather than a strong reprimand. The port on this mouthpiece is only 1 ¼" high, so it will apply little to no palate pressure. It is the mildest of the Level 2-3 mouthpieces in terms of tongue pressure, just one step below a Level 3 mouthpiece.

- Stainless Steel mouthpiece

Notes: For more tongue relief and the Level 3 version of this mouthpiece, see the MB 33. For more tongue pressure, see the MB 27LP, MB 27PB or the MB 41PB.
The Kimberwick is a “D” shaped stainless steel ring with a purchase for the headstall and two attachment options for a single pair of reins: the direct (snaffle) and the indirect (curb) positions. Comes with curb chain. Like the Pelham, the purchase creates a fixed cheek so the bit is held in the correct position. The rider can choose the direct (snaffle) position or indirect (Curb) position for rein attachment. The Indirect Rein position adds very little to mild leverage. Designed to be used with only one pair of reins.
Action: Snaffle position is Direct rein action. Curb position is Indirect rein action.
Size: 4" “D” shaped ring with purchase
Degree of Leverage: Very little to mild leverage when the lower rein hook is used.
