Myler Level 1
- Level 1 bits from Myler have a forward curved mouthpiece with little tongue freedom.
- Gives more pressure on the tongue than on the layers.
- Young horses that are being trained.
- Horses that are just in training.
- Horses that have not been under saddle for a long time.
- As the name implies, the side pieces of a D-snaffle have the shape of a D and therefore cannot be easily pulled through the mouth.
- Because of this D shape, more pressure is obtained on the horse's cheeks, which makes maneuverability easier.
- This makes the D-snaffle a nice bit for teaching young horses.
- Depending on the type, thickness and material, a D-bit gets a sharper or softer effect.
