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
Double jointed mouthpiece (broken mouth) will conform around the tongue and place pressure more equally over the tongue, bars and lips.
Any nutcracker effect is reduced & allows the rider independent control over the two sides of the mouth.
Many horses are more comfortable with Bits that conform around their mouth
This is a fantastic pelham for someone needing this style for showing purposes etc, but not necessarily wanting a severe Bit.
