14mm Cheek length :122mm Mouth size 4-1/2" - other sizes available, please ask >Pelhams provide benefits of a double bridle without the complexity of needing two bits >Can be used with two sets of reins so rider may have both a snaffle & a curb rein, or with single set of reins when used in conjunction with roundings, which is a typical arrangement for childrens ponies.
The bit can also be used with a single rein set, either at the snaffle ring or the curb ring, depending on the desired action >Ported mouth Pelham is shaped like a typical curb or Weymouth bit, in that the middle section is curved upwards to allow more room for the tongue, hence putting more pressure on the bars.
This makes it a more effective bit when curb action is required, although the snaffle action is more severe and not very laterally independent.
