The pelham cheekpiece combines the effect of a snaffle and a double bridle. The bit has one cheekpiece but can be ridden with one or two reins. If you choose to ride with one rein, a pelham strap is needed to connect the bit rings to the rings of the shanks. The longer the shanks, the sharper the effect. A pelham bit is mainly used with strong horses.
An elliptical (double-jointed) mouthpiece has two hinges, is shaped more towards the mouth and lies somewhat looser in the mouth. This bit exerts pressure on the tongue, the layers and the corners of the mouth. Be careful with narrow lower jaws, the hinge points can press on the layers which can cause wounds. Compared to a single jointed bit, this bit exerts more pressure on the tongue.
The sweet iron mouthpiece stimulates the saliva production and encourages the horse to take more contact.
A TRUST-bit is completely handmade. every component is welded together and polished by hand. By briefly heating the sweet iron it receives its beautiful deep blue colour. The finishing touch: stamping on the size and brand name.
TRUST bits are unique and guarantee the highest quality control standards.
