The Korsteel Stainless Steel Mullen Mouth Pelham is a simple, effective bit for horses who require a bit more leverage. The Pelham bit functions like a one piece bradoon and curb bit, allowing for a snaffle rein on the large ring at the bit end, and a curb rein on the end of the shank. The action of the curb will bring the horses head down through pressure on the jaw, poll and bars of the mouth. Pressure on the snaffle rein is milder, allowing the horse to bring his head up and forward. A curb chain is used under the jaw to prevent the curb rein from over rotating the bit. A lip strap can be attached to the lower slots. Rider's with good hands can use the bridle with a double rein, or a Pelham converter can be attached for use with a single rein. The Pelham is a good choice for schooling stronger horses as you have the option of varying the pressure in response to resistance.

  • Stainless steel mullen mouthpiece
  • 5.5" shanks
  • Stainless steel curb chain included
  • Can be used with double reins or a converter can be attached for single rein use
  • A good choice for horses who are uncomfortable in the double bridle
  • Frequently used for hunting, polo, some hunter classes and eventing

All horses mouths and tongues vary in size and shape, the bit must be the correct size and type for your horse.
