The distinctive design of the Pelham utilizes the snaffle rein to control direction, and the curb rein to control speed and head carriage. The unique swivel center joint allows for one side of the bit to move completely independent of the other with no pinching, binding or false pressure. This bit requires very light and accurate hands. A center swivel joint ball enables the sides of the bit to independently rotate 360. This function helps prevent painful pinching of the tongue and lips and gives the horse a more comfortable fitting when the bit is in action. Unlike conventional jointed bits, the riders control is improved as both sides of the bit are of equal length. The smooth center ball joint enables the sides of the bit to turn independently of each other in a smooth and silent movement. This allows the rider to communicate clearly with one side of the bit at a time, eliminating confusing signals and making isolated aids such as lifting one shoulder through a turn possible. Additionally, the silent movement of this new technology is a huge benefit for any horse that is noise sensitive and is a great advantage in the show ring.
