Watson Pelham 125

( 0 )

The Watson Pelham gives the impression of being part of a double bridle setup without using two bits. The bit is like a regular Pelham, but the snaffle rings have been moved so that they are connected through the center of the Mullen mouthpiece and now act as loose rings. The Watson Pelham has a longer centre shaft, than the Watson Ring Pelham, making it an excellent schooling bit.

Mullen mouthpiece with a leverage cheek: This combination gives very definite downward tongue pressure. As the cheek turns, the mouthpiece of the bit pushes it down into the lower jaw. This is good for a horse with ample lower jaw capacity that needs to be ridden in something stronger than a snaffle and dislikes, or does not need, a joint or a port.

The Pelham was developed as a combination between the snaffle and curb bit. It consists of a mouthpiece, shanks with two rings per side, a curb chain and to be used correctly, two reins.
