Trust Sweet Iron Pelham with Brass Rings
The Sweet Iron Pelham with brass rings is a special variation of the eliptical bit. The brass rings are designed to encourage the horse to play with its tongue. Due to the increased tongue activity, the horse also produces more saliva and the jaws can relax more. The Pelham Side Piece combines the action of a curb bit and a snaffle and can be ridden with one or two reins. For correct use with one rein, a pelham strap must be used to connect the bit rings to the rings of the shanks. A Pelham is suitable for particularly strong horses and is used to accustom the horse to the double bridle. The blue surface, the so-called Sweet Iron, reacts with moisture and then forms surface rust, which tastes sweet to horses and thus also encourages the horse to foam. The use of a Pelham requires an experienced and sensitive rider's hand, as it is a very sharp bit.
Note: When not in use, a thin, orange-brown layer of rust will develop on the mouthpiece. This can be removed with a damp cloth and does not represent a quality defect.
