Rawhide nose band and leather curb. The Myler combination bit starts with pressure from the nose to the cub allowing the horse the opportunity to break at the poll and relax before the mouthpiece engages. Independent side movement allows the rider/driver to pick up a shoulder independently. Used mainly on young horses that are just being started, as well as correcting older horses that need some tongue pressure to break at the poll.
The 43 mouthpiece is Curved with an upward and hinge in the center. The Myler Ported Hinge mouthpiece works well with the intermediate and finished horse. This is the bit for horses that have been working in an EM 43PB in the cart and are ready for the team. The 43 hinge is good for collecting and stopping. This bit can be used single, team or in the multiple hitches.
