Size 5 only.

7 1/2" Stainless Steel Embossed Seven Shank with Sweet Iron Forward Tilt Ported Barrel (MB 36, Level 2-3) Copper Inlay. This mouthpiece is made of polished Sweet Iron which naturally oxidizes or rusts. Harmless to horses, it has a sweet taste and promotes salivation.

About the Mouthpiece

  • The 36 mouthpiece is a Myler alternative to the traditional mullen mouthpiece. 
  • Has the wide low port that allows the tongue to pass under the bit comfortably. 
  • The port is ¼” high, just enough to allow the tongue to elevate and swallow, but not high enough for palate pressure. 
  • The 36 mouthpiece is identical to the 06, except the 36 port is tilted forward at a 45° angle. 
  • The 36 offers more tongue relief than the 06, but when the reins are engaged, the tilted port will apply more tongue pressure than the 06. 
  • The curved mouthpiece wraps the horse’s mouth, allowing more space for the tongue under the bit. 
  • When the reins are engaged, the 36 applies pressure primarily to the bars and lip. 
  • This mouthpiece also has Independent Side Movement.

Curb bits are leverage bits (as opposed to direct pressure bits, like snaffles) and the reins are attached below the mouthpiece (at the bottom of the shank). It is the ratio between the purchase (the part of the bit that is above the mouthpiece and attached to the headstall) and the shank (the part below the mouthpiece) that tells you how much leverage the bit has; a bit with a tall purchase has less leverage.


Curb bits must have a curb-strap or curb-chain to function properly. Use a leather strap (milder) unless your horse is difficult to stop, in which case you probably want a curb chain. All of the Myler bits listed below have mouthpieces with an ergonomic curvature and are made of polished sweet iron with copper inlays, which causes a chemical reaction in the horse’s mouth that encourages salivation (much like peeling an orange might cause a little spray of saliva in your mouth). Sweet iron will darken and rust with use, which is not harmful to the horse.
