The MB 36 is a Myler alternative to the traditional mullen, but it has a wide low port that allows the tongue to pass under it comfortably. The port is 1" high, and tilted forward at a 45º angle, allowing just enough room for the horse’s tongue to elevate slightly and swallow, but not high enough for palate pressure. When the reins are engaged, the MB 36 applies pressure primarily to the bars and lip and applies tongue pressure because of the forward tilt.
Size: 50mm ring
Independent Side Movement
Stainless Steel mouthpiece
Curved mouthpiece does not pinch lips or bars

Due to the contagious nature of the equine disease EHV 1 and per biosecurity measure guidelines suggested by the American Association of Equine Practitioners, The Farm House will no longer accept returns on bits and bit accessories.
Notes: This mouthpiece is a step up in tongue relief from Level 2, but because the port is low, it does not offer as much tongue relief as other Level 2-3 mouthpieces with slightly higher ports because the tongue is still somewhat restricted. The MB 36 mouthpiece is similar to the MB 06, except that it is ¼" higher and the port is tilted forward. The MB 06 mouthpiece will apply less tongue pressure than the MB 36 and offer less tongue relief when the reins are relaxed.
The Bridoon ring is a small version of the simple stainless steel "O" ring, where both the bridle and mouthpiece have no fixed point of attachment but slide freely around the ring, meant to be used in conjunction with a Weymouth in a double bridle. The loose ring allows a lot of play as the mouthpiece slides freely around the ring.
Discipline: English, specifically designed to be used in the double bridle with a Weymouth
Notes: The loose ring is generally considered one of the most non-interfering cheek pieces because the mouthpiece slides freely around the ring. However, the play in the mouthpiece can make it difficult for a horse to find your hands as the mouthpiece is in continual motion. The movement of the mouthpiece can also exaggerate or create a busy mouth in young or anxious horses. It is best suited for more advanced horses fully schooled in leg and seat aids as well as rein aids.
