This Bombers pelham has a spinner on the mouthpiece. The spinner is formed of two circular rings that sit on top of the tongue. They move with the tongue to prevent the horse from putting his tongue over the bit or rolling his tongue up behind the bit.
Together with the blue sweet iron mouthpiece, which oxidises in the horse's mouth to create a warm, sweet taste, this bit from Bombers Bits encourages mouthing, salivation and acceptance of the bit. It is designed to make the horse more relaxed in his mouth and encourages him to go forward into the bridle, rather than ducking behind the bit.
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.
Please note that the blue will fade with use.
