Stainless Steel Pelham
MB 04 Low Port Comfort Snaffle
The MB 04 is similar to the MB 02 in that it will rotate on the tongue and apply tongue pressure, however, it has a small (¼") port that
introduces some tongue relief to the horse. The port allows the horse to swallow and move his tongue when he is moving forward and relaxed,
which acts as a release or reward. The mouthpiece is curved, and it wraps around the bars and lips instead of pinching.
- Independent Side Movement
- Stainless Steel Mouthpiece
- Curved mouthpiece does not pinch lips and bars
- Copper Inlay
The stainless steel Pelham is designed to be used with two pairs of reins simultaneously. The headstall attaches to the purchase ring which
keeps the cheek stationary. The first set of reins are the snaffle reins, which attach to the larger ring adjacent to the mouthpiece. The
second set of reins are the curb reins, which attach to the smaller ring at the bottom of the shank. Comes with curb chain.
The Pelham uses both direct (snaffle) and indirect (curb) rein action using two sets of reins acting on one mouthpiece. Similar to a double
bridle, which also uses two sets of reins, but the double bridle requires a snaffle bit for the snaffle rein and a curb bit for the curb
rein. The Pelham can be used with a bit converter, a leather loop connecting the snaffle and curb ring to which only one set of reins is
Action: Snaffle ring is Direct rein action. Curb ring is Indirect rein action.
Size: 4" straight shank with purchase
Degree of Leverage: Mild
Notes: For a cheek that offers both Direct and Indirect rein as separate options for one set of reins, see the Kimberwick.
