This Stainless Steel Myler 7" Flat Shank Bit features the Sweet Iron Ported Barrel and Copper Inlay Mouth. This Sweet Iron 5" mouthpiece is made of polished Sweet Iron. This metal allows horses to produce saliva and tastes good too!
Design:The shank consists of a 7" length of metal with two rings and a fixed mouthpiece attachment.
Shanks are used for leverage and, typically, with a curb strap or chain. Depending upon the mouthpiece used, backward and upward pressure on the reins transfers into downward pressure on the poll, pressure on the curb, and forward and downward pressure on the palate. The tops, or purchases are bent away from the horse to prevent discomfort or rubbing.
