MYLER® HBT SHANK MULLEN FORWARD TILT PORTED BARREL MB 36 BIT

MYLER® HBT SHANK MULLEN FORWARD TILT PORTED BARREL MB 36 BIT

MYLER® HBT SHANK MULLEN FORWARD TILT PORTED BARREL MB 36 BIT

Myler Stainless Steel 5″ HBT Shank, MB 36 Mullen Forward Tilt Low Ported Barrel, Level 2-3

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, but also applies tongue pressure because of the forward tilt. Sweet iron mouthpiece oxidizes and encourages salivation.

  • Independent Side Movement
  • Sweet Iron mouthpiece
  • Curved mouthpiece does not pinch lips or bars
  • Copper Inlay

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 but additionally offer less tongue relief when the reins are relaxed. For more overall tongue relief and less tongue pressure, see the 43LP.

The 5″ HBT shank is stainless steel and slightly curved back, with a flat-top purchase and a rein ring. The mouthpiece has a fixed attachment. The HBT shank has the patented Independent Swivel Cheek, where the purchase, mouthpiece and shank all move independently of each other. The purchase is slightly angled away from the cheek to avoid rubbing. It has an indirect (curb) rein action designed to be used with a curb strap which attaches to the purchase. The HBT shank uses the combination of the fixed cheek and fixed rein to apply pressure to the mouth, chin and poll.

Action: Indirect

Discipline: Western

Degree of Leverage: Mild

Notes: The HBT is well suited to trail riding as the shorter shank makes grazing easier for the horse.
