Rugby Pelham Cheeks

The Rugby Pelham is becoming a big hit in the showing world as an alternative to the Weymouth and bradoon. It gives the look of a double bridle as worn with two reins.

The Rugby Pelham has an extra loose ring which is connected by a link on the snaffle ring, which is also gives a more direct contact to the mouthpiece than that of a normal pelham.

Traditionally the Pelham bit was often used for horses that prove too strong in a snaffle. It uses a variety of pressure points,

The first rein is attached to the snaffle ring, and the second rein attached to the ring at the bottom of the shank, known as the curb rein. When the first rein is used the Pelham acts like a hanging cheek snaffle, putting slight pressure on the poll. When the second rein is brought into play, this increases the leverage and chin pressure, which allows the curb chain to come into play.

The curb chain should be fitted so that the it tightens when the second rein is brought into play. (If you find the curb action too severe or is marking your sensitive horse mark easily we sell the Acavallo Gel Curb Guard via a separate listing in Black or Brown which has proven to be a real match for any brand of bit requiring a curb chain attachment.)

For jumpers/working hunters it may prove useful to use the Acavallo curb guard as some horses find that the curb chain alone restricts the movement and allowance for the neck to stretch. If the reins are not given in time it will cause the curb to over tighten and cause an adverse reaction.

 Cambridge Mouthpiece

The Cambridge mouth is a very mild mouthpiece. The pressure within the mouth doesn't change severely, as it's fixed. Being a fixed mouthpiece this is a super alternative to the straight bar option for horses with a larger tongue.

 This bit is extremely useful for those that have a soft mouth and don't appreciate complicated mouthpieces. We have found these bits beneficial for horses that back off the contact and need that extra bit of confidence.

This mouthpiece is not suitable for horse's who currently lean or if they tend to take hold of the bit or are heavy in the hand.

French Link.

The french link removes the nutcracker action of a single joint and therefore may be a good choice for horses with a low palate. Instead, the mouthpiece lays flat across the tongue.

There is a lot more mobility within the mouthpiece, some horses that may get "set" in a single jointed or mullen mouthed bit, may go lighter and lean less.

Horses with large or sensitive tongues may oppose to the french link because of the closer contact over the tongue.

Available in Stainless Steel in 5", 5.5" or 6".

Please note that bits which have had the tags removed or have been in contact with the horses mouth cannot be returned for health & safety reasons.
