LONG SHANK PELHAM HORSE BIT

The Long Shank Pelham bit has a stainless steel single jointed mouth piece. Stainless steel is strong, durable and low maintenance. This steel is cast using the "lost wax" technique, which produces a much finer detail and finish than traditional sand cast steel.

This bit is a good Pelham for horses that need more leverage; it applies pressure to the horse's poll lifting the horse's head. The leverage and severity increase with the length of the shank, this bit's shank is considered long.

Use: Two reins can be used with this bit. A rubber, laced or web rein as your main rein connected to the bit ring, the larger of the two rings and a more narrow flat leather curb rein connected to the curb ring, the smaller of the two rings. Leather or nylon converters can also be used with this bit.  Converters connect to the bit ring and curb ring. A main rein can then be connected to the converters allowing the rider to use one rein instead of two. 

This bit includes a stainless steel curb chain and hooks. The curb chain must be smooth, flat and adjusted correctly for the Pelham to work properly with your horse. This bit also has a small lip strap ring above the curb ring. The lip strap is a small leather strap that prevents the horse from grabbing the shank of the bit with his lips. A lip strap is not necessary for most horses.
