Cherry Roller Spinner Pelham
The Pelham 55 has attachments for two reins, one near the mouthpiece and one at the end of the shank. These reins have similar action to the curb and bridoon reins in the double bridle.
Some riders, not adept at handling two sets of reins, prefer to use rein connectors, leather loops which connect from one ring to the other on the bit shank. The rein is then attached to this rounding.
The Pelham 55 has the shortest shank (55 mm) out of our range, this will soften poll pressure and leverage on the mouthpiece and curb.
It is supplied with curb chain and hooks.
The Spinner sits on top of the horses tongue and prevents the horse putting its tongue over the bit.
The Cherry Rollers roll in the horses mouth giving him something to play with and reducing the likelihood of the bit being held in the horse’s teeth. They are constructed tightly so there is no chance of pinching. When pulling on the reins, the rollers allow the bit to move along the bars of the horse’s jaws as opposed to rubbing.
Very useful for horses that:
- Lose sensitivity over time
- Lose concentration
- Cross their jaws
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.
