This blue sweet iron jointed pelham from Bombers Bits has a curved single-jointed mouthpiece to distribute pressure more evenly over the tongue and bars. The offset centre link reduces the nutcracker action, therefore relieving pressure points on the palate, bars and tongue.
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.
The blue sweet iron mouthpiece from Bombers Bits oxidises easily, creating a warm, sweet taste that promotes salivation and acceptance of the bit.
Please note that the blue will fade with use.
