About Pelhams

Pelhams are a ‘two in one’ bit being distinctive by having; a curb chain, two points of rein attachment and a cheek that extends below the mouthpiece.  They grew from the need to have less ironmongery in horses’ mouths than that of a double bridle with its two independent bits. Some horses simply do not have mouths large enough for this.  Reportedly named after a prominent family by that name these bits are in reality, a curb bit (Weymouth) with additional rings fixed to the cheeks next to the mouthpiece.  Two sets of reins are used and the top ring acts as a Snaffle.  The use of the rein attached to the rings at the lower end of the cheek gives the leverage action which functions in combination with the curb chain.

HOW ARE YOUR PELHAM BITS MEASURED?

The diagram on the right shows you how we measure our bits. We can make longer length cheeks if you have the need for more leverage. The bit width is especially important to get right. Don't forget we can do mouth piece sizes to the nearest 1/4" so you can be sure to get the right size.
