The Myler Bitting System has proven effective for many riders, and the Level 2 Dee with Hooks might just be the answer for you and your horse. This stainless steel large 3 3/4" Dee with hooks has a low port comfort snaffle (MB 04, Level 2) mouthpiece with copper inlay. Hooks offer leverage with direct action type bits. This feature rolls the mouthpiece forward and downward into the tongue and bars with rein pressure, encouraging the horse to break at the poll. Most traditional ring bits only apply backward pressure into the tongue and bars which can cause a horse to resist. The bit attaches to the headstall and reins with the rein or headstall going from the outside of the bit, through the slot and fastening.
