Myler Short Shank 3-Ring Combination Bit with Correctional Ported Barrel
This Myler three-ring combination bit is made of stainless steel with a sweet iron mouthpiece and copper inlay which naturally oxidizes or rusts. Harmless to horses, it has a sweet taste and promotes salivation. Additionally, the mouthpiece has a correctional ported barrel, allowing the bit to swivel in the center. This level two-three bit is perfect for horses that could benefit from more tongue relief or those with advanced skills but the rider needs more control. The combination bit utilizes various pressure points through the work of the mouthpiece, curb strap, and noseband.

A rope noseband covered with leather and curb strap are linked together and run through two small offset rings on the purchase This particular mouthpiece has a correctional ported barrel in the center. 6" shank.
The Myler 3-Ring combination bit automatically disperses or releases direct action and leverage pressures to the horse’s mouth, chin, nose and poll. Light pressure is applied to the mouth as the mouthpiece slides on the ring. After contacting the “ring stop,” the mouthpiece will engage completely and apply more downward pressure. Also, the backward and downward pressure of the noseband and the forward pressure of the curb strap are extremely effective at asking a horse to relax at the poll.
