The Low port comfort snaffle is the most popular Myler bit to start a youngster or novice horse in. The 30 04 offers some tongue relief, and is comfortable and explicit in its action for kind but effective communication. The 30 cheek is an eggbutt style cheek but with slots for the reins and cheek pieces to go through. This gives this Myler bit the ability to apply a little poll pressure and there are also two small holes to accept hooks for a curb chain if required. The Myler eggbutt with slots is a very versatile bit and gives a much clearer action and release than traditional bits, which results in the horse understanding the rider more quickly and consistently.
