This low ported comfort snaffle made of sweet iron with copper inlay has a 5 inch HBT shank Design: A length of metal with two rings and fixed mouhtpiece attachment. The top ring is for headstall attachment; the bottom ring is for the reins. The length of metal below the mouthpiece is round and bent at an angle toward the rider’s hands. The top, or purchase, is angled away from the horse and the ring is squared. Function: Shanks are used for leverage and, typically, with a curb strap or chain. Depending upon the mouthpiece used, backward and upward pressure on the reins transfers into downward pressure on the poll, pressure on the curb, and forward and downward pressure on the palate. The tops, or purchases are bent away from the horse to prevent discomfort or rubbing. Usage: Used in Western disciplines. Options: Patented bushing system which allows the shank to turn independently of the mouthpiece, purchase and headstall. Stainless Steel 5" HBT Shank with Sweet Iron Low Port Comfort Snaffle (MB 04, Level 2) Copper Inlay Mouth 5" This mouthpiece is made of polished Sweet Iron which naturally oxidizes or rusts. Harmless to horses, it has a sweet taste and promotes salivation.

"I bought this bit as a transition bit for my colt from a western D snaffle. The independent side movement of the Myler bits is amazing. I am VERY happy with this bit and so is my horse."
