The Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) will be discussing a topic that affects almost all horse owners—bits and bitting—on CHA’s February Radio Show with “Horses in the Morning.” CHA CEO Christy Landwehr and Jenn Hebert, will host Dr. Bob Coleman, CHA’s Vice President of New Initiatives, and Cheryl Rohnke-Kronsberg, who runs CRK Stables in CA. In addition, CHA is excited to have on the show Dale Myler of Toklat and Myler Bits as the featured sponsor. The show will air live at 9 a.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, February 20, 2018. Those who can’t listen live can catch the recorded version afterward on iTunes, HorsesintheMorning.com, through the Horse Radio Network mobile phone app, or on CHA’s site at http://cha-ahse.org/store/pages/218/Horse_Radio_Network_Show.html.
Toklat manufactures and distributes some of the most popular branded equestrian products, including Myler Bits. Myler is more than just bits. The Myler System is a whole new way of understanding how the bit works in the horse’s mouth. Dale Myler, along with his brothers Ron and Bob, are third generation horsemen who are three of the world’s leading bit designers. Dale’s extensive research into equine dentistry and physiology has evolved our understanding of not only the mechanics of bits, but also how they can contribute to the communication between horse and rider. Dale has spoken in clinics and seminars all over the U.S. and around the world about bitting. He also speaks at expos and for many organizations and has spoken at the CHA International Conference, as well as conducting private clinics and seminars. Visit www.toklat.com for more information.
