Some Uses and Benefits:
- The 2 rings allow for 1 or 2 rein placement for training or riding.
- Good for many disciplines especially for speed events like barrel racing, polo, team penning.
- Nose pressure helps rider to stay light with cues.
- "The horse is offered a pressure-free reward whenever he is light and relaxed at the poll."~Myler bits. So it's good for training and riding.
- Good for all types of horse's personalities.
- The curb action (with a curb chain) will use leverage and therefore will ask for more attention from the horse.
- The mouthpiece gives great room for the tongue, will not interfere with horse when there is slack in the reins. Will give a great head set when contact is made on the reins. Also will act as a great emergency brake!
- With rough or quick hands. Anyone who has no patience.
- Beginners who are learning to use reins for communication. Need some slight skill at using reins.
- Riders who like to use a lot of rein work in their riding. This bit is for softer, quieter signals. Make life easier.
- Just started under saddle and learning their job. Need a horse who understands rein cues and nose pressure to some degree.

- "Dispersed pressure for a kinder, softer message. "
- "Utilizing various pressure points, Combination Bits offer simultaneous interaction of the mouthpiece, curb strap and noseband. When rein pressure is applied or released, the bit automatically disperses or releases pressure to the horse's mouth, chin, nose and poll. Because pressure is dispersed, the bits offer succint and effective, yet very humane communication, allowing the rider to use less pressure than needed with a traditional bit."
- "The curb strap sits high on the jaw, so to be closer to the rotational point of the second vertebrae or poll. Curb pressure encourages the horse to rotate his nose downward and backward until the pressure is released, hence he relaxes at the poll."
- "The sliding mouthpiece works lightly in the mouth, applying subtle pressure on the tongue and/or bars, until it hits the "ring stop" when it then applies downward pressure, asking the horse with more of a signal."
- "The noseband applies downward and backward pressure over points on the nose. In response to the pressure, the horse will drop his nose down and back towards his center."
- Independent side movement of shank. Great for lateral work.
- Copper inlay in mouthpiece. Great for salivation. Helps horse to relax.
- Swivel shank for more guided lateral movement or direct reining.
- Curved mouthpiece creates a bit of room for horse's tongue as opposed to a bit that goes across the mouth or jointed (nutcracker effect. Nasty). ie. Humane.
- Can have 1 or 2 rein attachment. The 1st ring acts like snaffle. The 2nd ring like a curb bit.
