Myler Stainless Steel Dee without Hooks, MB 01 Comfort Snaffle with Narrow Barrel, Level 1
The MB 01 is the Myler alternative to the traditional single-jointed mouthpiece commonly used in snaffle bits. The MB 01 rotates onto the tongue to apply concentrated tongue pressure at the center barrel, but because the mouthpiece is curved, it wraps around the bars and lips instead of pinching. The barrel in the center applies approximately the same pressure on the tongue as a traditional single-jointed mouthpiece. However, the barrel distributes the pressure more kindly and allows for each side of the bit to be used independently.

Curved mouthpiece does not pinch lips and bars
USEF Dressage Legal, 2019. Consult rulebook for more information.
Notes: The mouthpiece is similar to the MB 02 but the center barrel of the MB 01 is narrower, which concentrates pressure on the center of the tongue more than the MB 02. For more tongue relief, step up to the MB 04.
The dee without hooks is a traditional "D" shaped cheek with fixed attachment of the mouthpiece. This style keeps the mouthpiece from draping on the tongue, providing a more direct signal than the loose ring. The straight side of the dee will not pull through the mouth and does not pinch.
Size: 3 ¾" dee ring on 5" mouthpiece, 3" pony dee ring on 4 ½" mouthpiece
Notes: For a more versatile version of the cheek piece, see the English dee with hooks or the eggbutt with hooks.
