Small Cheek Flat Reclining Pelham Bit
Composition: Pelham bit with 45 mm long bars and a 30 mm large cannon made of stainless steel.
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 to the neck and exercises pressure on the mandibles.
Tips: The flat cannon is atypical but is very comfortable for certain horses as it articulates around an axis (90°) and offers a large contact surface to the horse. The size of the cheeks makes it a little softer than the 0029P. This Pelham bit can be used directly with two reins or with four reins. Therefore, the curb chain action can be softened by using other curb chain types as leather or nylon ones.
Maintenance advice: rinse the bit after each use to prevent any residue deposit and to avoid your horse to feel any discomfort.
