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
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.
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..
