The pelham bit is best used with double reins. The snaffle rein is in direct contact with the horse’s mouth while the curb rein applies poll pressure to push the nose towards the chest.
The two reins can be transferred to one rein through a rein connector which is ideal for children and ponies.
The bit can also be used with just a single rein, either at the snaffle ring or the curb ring, depending on the desired action.
The Elliptical Link has a rounded central piece and therefore gentler in the horses mouth. A popular mouth piece across multiple disciplines as it is easier accepted by most horses.
The elliptical mouth reduces pressure on the tongue and bars of the mouth as well as the palate. Elliptical mouths encourage a softer contact.
