Level Two Myler Bits are designed for horses who have already had basic training and have mastered basic skills. These skills can include bending, lead changes, side passes and collection or holding a relaxed head position at the poll when the reins are relaxed, depending upon your riding discipline. Level Two Bits use more bar pressure than Level One Bits and may incorporate features that apply curb, palate and/or poll pressures as well. A minimum of intermediate riding skills work best for Level Two Bits.
Level Three Three Myler Bits are designed for horses considered broke who are willing to obey commands, relaxed at the poll and respond well to seat, hand and leg cues. Level Three Bits feature the curved mouthpiece but generally apply most pressure to the bars and may incorporate features that apply curb, palate and/or poll pressures as well. As a general rule, Myler Level Three Bits are best used by advanced riders and are designed to make the finished horse as soft as possible in the mouth.
A bit of general information and background about Myler bits:
