Small cheek twisted Pelham bit
Composition: Pelham bit with 45 mm long bars and standard 17 mm thick cannons made of German Silver (65% copper, 23% zinc, 12% nickel) a relaxing and solid alloy.
Effect: the Pelham bit is a great compromise between the bridle and the double bridle. It offers a lever action more or less strong depending on the cheeks length, the curb chain adjustment and how it is assembled. This bit makes the horse give in in the neck and exercises pressure on the mandibles.
Tips: The twisted thin cannons give more action to this bit so the rider can also have more action and be firmer in the communication with the horse. Every Pelham bit can be used directly with two reins, with bit loops or with four reins. Therefore, the curb chain action can be softened by using other curb chain types as leather or nylon ones.
Size: 125 or 135
Maintenance advice: rinse the bit after each use to prevent any residue deposit and to avoid your horse to feel any discomfort.
