the Mylers - three of the world's leading bit designers
Introducing Ron, Dale and Bob Myler, the creators of Myler Bits
About ten years ago. Ron, a rodeo competitor and professional
horse trainer, realized that to get the very best from every
horse he rode, he needed to communicate more effectively
with them. And that required a relaxed horse, ready and willing
to receive a rider's message.
Brother Bob, a machinist and welder skilled at working with
metals and with a clever mind for engineering, created a
bit that would offer a curve for tongue relief and a shank
that rotated 360 degrees.
After seeing the success Ron achieved with the unique bits,
Dale, also an experienced horse trainer and rodeo competitor,
began using them as well. Soon, all three brothers were collaborating
on bit design and theories.
Knowing the need for the bits stretched well beyond their
barns, the Mylers began to make and sell custom handmade
bits under the family name. Since then, Ron and Dale have
been extremely active in the promotion of Myler Bits and
the Myler bitting philosophy.
As a result of the bits' popularity, Mylers have developed
two types of Myler Bits now available: custom, handmade
bits and quality production bits. Handmade bits, crafted
in Marshfield, Missouri, offer unique bit combinations
and options for a broad range of specific horse and rider
needs, including a patented bushing system and numerous
In 1998, to make Myler Bits accessible to more horsemen
and women, Mylers began producing many popular bit designs
in China, according to our rigid quality control standards.
Since then, several significant design refinements have
been added to both lines and horses and riders all over
the world have enjoyed a greater level of comfort and communication.
