We love this bit because of the elegant design as well as the soft mouthpiece that horses love.
The eggbutt is a mouthpiece with universal use, it sits very quietly in the horse"s mouth and the eggbutt sides effectively prevent lip pinching. The Pelham- a classic bit, now in our more elegant and enhanced design. When the reins are applied, the bit acts on the mouth, lower jaw and poll.
Depending on lever length of the shanks (5 cm or 7.5 cm), a different strength and direct bit angulation in the mouth is achievable. Used on horses that have difficulties coming through at the poll, "hot" horses, or on horses that need significant input in critical situations (such as jump offs or similar).
The Pelham is supplied with curb hooks.
*Due to the contagious nature of the equine disease EHV-1 and in accordance to biosecurity measures suggested by the American Association of Equine Practitioners we are no longer able to accept returns on bits.
