5.75″ Myler HBT Low Port Short Shank Curb


5.75″ Myler Level 2 Short Shank in pristine condition. Used so little, it hasn’t started to rust at all! Great option for a larger horse or draft, custom ordered in this size and to have a thinner mouth. MB06 low ported barrel mouth, offering a slightly higher port to give more tongue relief, without any correction or pressure on the palate. One of our favorite bits! The mouth is sweet iron, so will rust with time and use to offer a pleasant taste for your horse. Retail, this bit is $180! Nice larger size option too!

Per Myler:

The MB 06 is a Myler alternative to the traditional mullen, but it has a wide low port that allows the tongue to pass under it comfortably. The port is ¾” high, just enough to allow the horse’s tongue to elevate slightly and swallow, but not high enough for palate pressure. When the reins are engaged, the 06 applies pressure primarily to the bars and lips. Sweet iron mouthpiece oxidizes and encourages salivation.

The 5″ HBT shank is stainless steel and slightly curved back, with a flat-top purchase and a rein ring. The mouthpiece has a fixed attachment. The HBT shank has the patented Independent Swivel Cheek, where the purchase, mouthpiece and shank all move independently of each other. The purchase is slightly angled away from the cheek to avoid rubbing. It has an indirect (curb) rein action designed to be used with a curb strap which attaches to the purchase. The HBT shank uses the combination of the fixed cheek and fixed rein to apply pressure to the mouth, chin and poll.
