This Pelham has a soft ported Nathe mouthpiece.
Ported Nathe Mouthpiece
This soft Nathe bit has a port to adapt to the horse's tongue anatomy, allowing space for the tongue and creating even pressure across the mouth.
Nathe bits are designed for horses with sensitive, fussy or very light mouths. The nathe material is extremely gentle to the horse's mouth and tongue, and helps to activate salivation and softening to the contact. Not to be confused with cheaper, plastic mouthpieces, Nathe is soft and flexible, but not as bulky as rubber.
Due to the delicate nature of the Nathe material, horses have been known to chew through it.
Comes with rope roundings.
The Nathe Soft Ported Pelham has 2cm diameter mouthpiece, shanks 7cm below the mouth. Available in 13.5cm (5 1/4in) or 14.5cm (5 3/4in).
