The pelham cheekpiece combines the effect of a snaffle and a double bridle. The bit has one cheekpiece but can be ridden with one or two reins. If you choose to ride with one rein, a pelham strap is needed to connect the bit rings to the rings of the shanks. The longer the shanks, the sharper the effect. The pelham has long shanks and therefore is a stronger bit than the baby pelham. A pelham bit is mainly used with strong horses, horses with too little space in the mouth for two mouthpieces, or horses that have to get used to a double bridle.

Sweet iron will rust when in contact with (air) humidity. The surface rust tastes sweet and naturally stimulates saliva production. This will cause the horse to salivate more which will encourage the horse to take more contact.  The process of rusting (oxidation) changes the blue color of the Trust-bit to a brownish-grey. A sweet iron bit will develop an orange-brown rust layer on the mouthpiece if it is temporarily not used. This is easily removed by wiping it off with a damp cloth.
