The creators of Myler bits – Ron, Dale and Bob Myler – offer a philosophy behind each of their bits. The bits are designed to establish communication between the rider’s hands and the horse with the least amount of resistance. The bit is a communication TOOL.  To effectively communicate with your horse, your horse must be RELAXED.  If your horse is resistant, your horse is not effectively receiving your message. The key to properly bitting any horse is to find the mouthpiece the horse can relax into, with the hands that are holding it.
