BC45 Pelham (Polo) (75mm shank)
Bombers Bit BC45 Pelham
The Bombers Bit BC45 Pelham is set at 45° to follow the contour of the horses tongue.
Consequently,a horse who uses his tongue as a means of pushing against the bit and therefore taking control, will draw back and tuck his chin in, coming back to a better point of control.
This differs from a Dr Bristol which sits horizontlaly with the edge of the plate on the tongue.
The 75mm shank Pelham has attachments for two reins, one near the mouthpiece and one at the end of the shank. Hence, these reins have similar action to the curb and bradoon reins in the double bridle.
Additionally, all our bits are made from blue sweet iron, because it:
- oxidises easily
- encourages salivation
- helps bit acceptance
- is warm and sweet
Please note the blue will fade with use.
All Pelhams come with standard curb chain
