We love this bit because the pelham cheekpieces give more control for stronger horses, while the Inno Sense mouthpiece is still soft in the mouth.
The pelham jaw piece combines the action of a snaffle and a bar and snaffle. The bit has one jaw piece but can be ridden with one or two reins. If you choose to ride with one rein, a converter is needed. The pelham is a lever-action mouthpiece. The longer the shank, the sharper the effect. The baby pelham has short shanks and therefore has a milder effect than the normal pelham. A pelham bit is mainly used for strong horses, horses with too little space in the mouth for two mouthpieces, or horses that have to get used to a bar and snaffle. This bit is not suitable for inexperienced riders.
This mouthpiece is a rod with a medium port. The tongue arch provides more tongue freedom so that there is no pressure on the tongue but is distributed over the layers. This makes the bit ideal for horses with a sensitive tongue or horses that stick out the tongue. This bit is not suitable for an inexperienced rider.
The Sweet Iron bits are made of steel and have a recognizable blue color. Sweet Iron develops surface rust through contact with (air) moisture that tastes sweet and stimulates the horse's saliva production naturally. This will cause the horse to foam more, which ensures better acceptance of the bit. This rusting process (oxidation) changes the blue color of the TRUST bits to brown-gray.
Due to the contagious nature of the equine disease EHV 1 and per biosecurity measures suggested by the American Association of Equine Practitioners The Farm House will no longer accept returns on bits.
TRUST Equestrian stands behind the quality of the products and warrants them against all defects in material and workmanship.
However, we offer no guarantees in the event of biting on the Inno Sense mouthpieces. The bit should rest on top of the bars (this is the part of the jawline without teeth or molars). If the bit is placed correctly in the mouth, the bit will not touch the teeth or molars.
There are some horses, due to dental problems, that can damage the bit by biting it or by lifting the bit upwards with their tongue so that the horse can reach the bit.
In this event, they create the possibility that the flexible material of the TRUST Inno Sense Flexi bit can get damaged. The material of the Inno Sense Flexi bits is FDA approved, which means it is non-toxic and does not contain plasticizers.
Defective TRUST Inno Sense Flexi bits with bite marks shall therefore not be reimbursed by TRUST Equestrian.
Due to the contagious nature of the equine disease EHV 1 and per biosecurity measures suggested by the American Association of Equine Practitioners we are no longer able to accept returns on bits.
