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.
Sweet iron will rust when it comes into contact with (air) humidity; the surface rust tastes sweet and naturally stimulates the saliva production. This will cause the horse to salivate more which in turn encourages better acceptance of the bit. The rusting process (oxidation) changes the blue colour of the TRUST-bit to a brownish-grey.
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.
