Bombers Bit Pelham (55 Shank)

Bombers Bit Pelham (55 Shank)

Standard Curb Chain and hooks included in sale on all the Bombers Bit Pelham.  A Military Curb Chain is available for £16.20.

Furthermore, 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.

Consequently, some riders, not adept at handling two sets of reins, prefer to use rein connectors. These are 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.

In addition, 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.
