Myler Stainless Steel 5" HBT Shank, MP 43LP Narrow Low Ported Barrel, Level 2-3

The HBT is well suited to trail riding as the shorter shank makes grazing easier for the horse. This bit does not rotate on to the tongue, but instead sits solidly across the bars and lips of the horse’s mouth. The port is narrower than a Level 3 mouthpiece, but still offers room for the horse’s tongue to pass under the bit. Because the port is narrow, when the reins are engaged, the horse will feel a slight pressure on the outside edges of the tongue — a gentle reminder rather than a strong reprimand. The port on this mouthpiece is only 1 ¼" high, so it will apply little to no palate pressure. It is the mildest of the Level 2-3 mouthpieces in terms of tongue pressure, just one step below a Level 3 mouthpiece. Sweet iron mouthpiece oxidizes and encourages salivation.

  • Independent Side Movement
  • Sweet Iron mouthpiece
  • Curved Mouthpiece does not pinch lips and bars
  • Copper Inlay

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.

Action: Indirect

Sizing & FAQs

Spurs, blankets, etc

Every saddle I have is covered with an AJ Tack cover. I use them while traveling, and they are very durable. The zipper is efficient in keeping dust off of my saddle, and the handle makes it so much easier to carry.
