Beris Konnex Tongue Port Pelham Bit

We love this bit because not only is it great for heavier horses, but also those with lower palates and thicker tongues.

This combines the effect of a tongue port with the positive characteristics of the butterfly bar. The profile of the KONNEX bar is slimmer, it positions itself very comfortably in the horse’s mouth, providing more room. In addition, the port is significantly broader in the KONNEX bar. Suitable for horses with little room in their mouth, e.g. thoroughbred types or older horses (due to change in dental alignment), horses with larger tongues and especially those not tolerating pressure points on the tongue.

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.
