Doubles & Pelhams

Pelhams are a stronger bit than snaffle and training styles of bit, and use a leverage action and pressure on the poll to encourage the horse to adopt the correct head carriage. Pelhams are ideal for horses that require a stronger bit and more brakes. The Pelham bit is designed to be used with double reins, and usually incorporates a curb chain, using a dual action of the top rein and the lower curb rein. The curb chain is used to prevent the leverage action causing the bit to rotate too far in the horse’s mouth, and also provides another pressure point. When activated, the curb rein puts pressure on the horse’s poll, the bars of the mouth and the chin, which allows the rider to lower the horse’s head, encouraging a correct head carriage. This type of bit is often used for schooling and everyday riding by a competent rider, and is also popular for use in showing. 

Here at Unicorn Saddlery, we have a great selection of doubles and pelhams that are ideal for horses that go well in a snaffle bit, but require a stronger alternative. Our products within this range are provided by some of the leading horse bit manufacturers in the industry, including WeatherBeeta and Neue Schule.
