The hanging cheek myler snaffle with comfort mouthpiece is a good alternative to the popular 30 04 eggbutt with hooks comfort snaffle for riders wishing to have a more traditional appearance. Some poll pressure is achieved with the hanging cheek, but not as much as the eggbutt with hooks cheek, making the 41 04 a good choice for horses more sensitive to poll pressure. The 41 04 acts on tongue and corners of bars, gently wrapping lips, but port gives more tongue relief than the straighter 02 mouth when bit not engaged by rider. Ideal for intermediate horse, and also for many beginners. The comfort snaffle mouthpiece encourages the horse to bend, balance and relax at the poll. The 04 mouth will take a horse further than an MB02 or traditional snaffle due to greater tongue relief.
