This lightweight rubber nylon compound mouthpiece on the Bombers Blue Pelham bit is ported for tongue relief. This reduces tongue pressure, while applying pressure to the bars of the mouth.
This bit may be suitable for horses with large tongues, who find straight bar bits uncomfortable.
The rings on the Pelham provide a similar action to that offered by a double bridle, but in a less precise manner. When the top rein is used, the bit has a similar action to that of a hanging cheek snaffle, putting pressure on the bars of the mouth as well as a limited amount of poll pressure. The curb rein provides leverage action on the poll and also puts pressure on the curb groove via the curb chain. The pelham can be used with two reins or with pelham roundings.
A curb chain is included with this bit.
