JUMP'IN Small Cheek Pelham Bit w/ High Port
Small Cheek Pelham Bit with High Port
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 to the neck and exercises pressure on the mandibles.
Tips: The high port helps with direction. Horses can easily place their tongue, breathe better and be more focused while working. 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.
Maintenance advice: rinse the bit after each use to prevent any residue deposit and to avoid your horse to feel any discomfort.
