Eldonian Port Mouth Pelham BI701


Create Wishlist

The very common and most basic Pelham style.
-The Pelham is a compromise between a snaffle and a weymouth- purists will therefore argue they should only be used with two reins, however due to the fixed shanks one can never truely differentiate between the two reins.

- Often used with great success with roundings or split reins, particularly with children and strong ponies as too much knitting can be hazardous!
-Can assist with strong horses and ponies with brakes and lowering of the head

Really effective bit
Written by Ali on Mar 07, 2014

I have purchased this bit for my ex-racehorse who is a little too heavy on the hands and can get too excited when with other horses, especially when out, for a snaffle. It has been absolutely great so far. He is much more responsive to my aids. I am 1/10 of the strength in my hands as I used to be which is really nice for both horse and rider. I feel that because of his respect for this bit, I am actually being kinder to his mouth than with a snaffle. Also it definitely makes me more aware of how little I have to ask for something and how quickly he responds.

Always an excellent bit to use, encourages horses to round up and relax, I have always used this bit on most of my horses the port is excellent for those who dont go well in a snaffle as it hugs the lower jaw and doesn't move up to hit the moulers,

Best Bit I Have Used
Written by Bek on Nov 09, 2011

I recently started retraining my OTT Mare. Originally I had her in a French Link Snaffle, however she found it more of an annoyance to be ignored than an aid to listen to. I used the Pelham with double reins, as I find the mare reacts differently when I am using the reins at different pressures, and nothing stops her from bolting faster or rearing than a one rein stop with the bottom reins. She is much better now, and has respect for the bit, and I firmly believe it is thanks to the Pelham. :)
