Special Series Bits

Lynn McKenzie Signature Series
Myler Bits® has teamed up with two-time World Champion Barrel Racer Lynn McKenzie developing a collection of Myler Bits® for the special communication needs of barrel racing and speed event horses and riders.

Within the Lynn McKenzie Signature Series, there are bits for every state of training - from turning your first barrel to securing championships. With this variety, horses and riders are sure to find a bit that allows them to focus on what's important - winning.

Myler Patented Bushing System & The Neil Merrill Cheek
With many bits, turning the shank also turns the headstall ring, or purchase, into a horse’s cheek, causing distraction from the rider’s commands. With the Mylers’ Patented Bushing System (available with custom and selected ready-made bits), the shank pivots independently with outward rein pressure until stopping at 45º, without turning the mouthpiece, purchase or headstall. Offering concise mouthpiece action, this small, important feature allows the horse to respond to subtle rein pressure and reduces riders’ overcommunication. For signalling with a direct rein, designer Neil Merrill collaborated with the Mylers to create Neil Merrill Cheeks, which include the Patented Bushing System and unique hinged cheekplates. These features allow the cheekplates and headstall to stay flat to the horse’s face with outside and upward rein pressure, even when taking tight turns using a strong leading rein. Useful for any discipline or level of horse, Neil Merrill Cheeks are especially valuable for highly athletic events such as barrel racing or jumping.
