This Beris Bits baby pelham has a soft, flexible ported mouthpiece, which is pleasant in the horse's mouth yet has a steel core for safety.
This bit fits the horse's mouth anatomically so it sits in the perfect position. The flattened area on the port allows plenty of space for the horse's tongue. As a result, many horses respond with increased relaxation and chewing.
This bit is often suitable for horses with a soft mouth that don't like complicated mouthpieces and that won't tolerate tongue pressure so react by headshaking.
This bit is also a good choice for those that tend to put their tongue over the bit. The port helps to prevent this be removing the central tongue pressure.
The pelham can be used with two reins or with pelham roundings.
When the top rein is used, the pelham works like a hanging cheek snaffle, putting slight pressure on the poll and using even pressure across the tongue.
Once the curb rein is engaged, the leverage and lip pressure are increased as well as activating the curb chain.
Comes with curb hooks, bit rubbers and rope Pelham roundings.
The Beris Ported Baby Pelham is available with short shanks (5cm below the mouth) in 13cm or 14cm with a soft or a hard mouthpiece.
