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: 3 ½" rounded ring

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. For more overall tongue relief while remaining dressage legal, see the MB 33WL.
An eggbutt is a traditional cheek style that keeps the mouthpiece from draping on the tongue, providing a more direct signal than the loose ring. The straight side of Eggbutt will not pull through the mouth and does not pinch. For a more versatile version, see the eggbutt with hooks.
Discipline: English or Western
