Hard Mouthed Pelham
Stainless steel with TPU covered mouthpiece for horses with sensitive mouths. TPU is a non-toxic synthetic polymer that is more durable than rubber.
The pelham bit is used with both snaffle and curb reins but unlike a Weymouth & Bradoon, it only has one mouthpiece. Use of the curb rein acts on poll pressure and chin (via the curb chain), while direct pressure on the snaffle rein acts on the side of the mouth.
The use of Pelham Roundings (available in Brown or Black), convert this bit's use to a single rein only, and this reduces the normal curb action that a pelham bit delivers.
This model is made with a straight mouthpiece for a milder action on the mouth and comes complete with double link curb chain.
