Elliptical Roller Pelham (POLO)
The Elliptical Roller is made of brass or sweet iron, which is designed to heighten the horses awareness of the bit.
When the rein is used this mouthpiece wraps across the tongue creating tongue pressure and reducing bar pressure.
Please note appearances may be deceiving, this bit joint is stronger than the control plate as pressure is more concentrated on the tongue.
The Pelham 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 bradoon reins in the double bridle.
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.
