Pelham Elliptical Link
by Tack Shack
This bit is made of stainless steel, therefore designed never to rust, bend or break. The pelham has a central rounded, egg shaped link with an otherwise traditional design. Most horses readily accept this bit and are more comfortable in their mouths. There is no nutcracker action due to the central link, creating a continuous feel from one side to the other. Although more severe than a mullenmouth pelham, it is kinder than the thinner jointed pelham. Ideally used with double reins, the curb rein applies poll pressure to tilt the angle of the nose in towards the chest. The snaffle rein has a more direct contact with the horse’s mouth. It can also be used with rein connectors and therefore a single rein.
