Happy Tongue Petros Pelham (POLO)
Happy Tongue Petros Pelham
A horse shaking its head when bit pressure is applied or its tongue trying to escape the bit are classic signs the horse has a sensitive tongue.
With this in mind the Happy Tongue was created, it has a medium port creating space for the tongue, relieving pressure, allowing the horse to relax.
The Petros mouthpieces rotate preventing the horse taking hold of the bit and can be combined with any 3-piece bit. Often good for a horse that leans or tries to take hold of the bit.
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.
