Stainless Steel Pelham Bit, with hooks & curb chain.

Low port mouth (aka Cambridge or Hartwell pelham)

Cheek length:5" - Mouth thickness:13mm

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 children’s 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.
