Bit Pelham Jointed
A pelham bit provides the benefits of a double bridle – using snaffle action and curb action – without the need for 2 bits. A Pelham can be used with a variety of rein options. 1. Two reins can be used so that the rider has both a snaffle and a curb rein. 2. A rein connector can also be used – a connector attaches to the curb ring and the snaffle ring, and the rein attaches to the connector, allowing the use of a single rein. 3. A single rein can be used without connectors, either at the snaffle ring or the curb ring, depending on the desired action and amount of control needed. A pelham needs to be used with a curb chain to be effective. The jointed mouth piece gives the rider more control with the nutcracker action. The nutcracker action is magnified by the leverage of the long shanks.
