This Beris Bits pelham has a soft, flexible ported mouthpiece, which is pleasant in the horse's mouth yet has a steel core for safety.
Available with a 7cm shank in 13cm or 14cm with a soft or a hard mouthpiece.
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 very soft mouth that don't like complicated mouthpieces and those that won't tolerate tongue pressure and tend to react to this by shaking their head.
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.
This Beris pelham comes with a nylon curb strap, bit rubbers and rope Pelham roundings.
