This high quality double jointed Pelham bit, with loose shanks and leverage, is made from solid Cuprigan with stainless steel rings. Cuprigan is an alloy consisting of 89% copper, 7% aluminum, 3% iron and 1% zinc. The oxidation process of the material gives a pleasant smell and taste. The anatomical design follows the shape of the horse's mouth, creating a soft and even pressure distribution. The combination of the design and the unique composition of Cuprigan stimulates the chewing process and the production of saliva, which creates a fine connection with the sensitive horse's mouth. The rising scissors with ring are slightly outwards, which ensures optimum freedom for the horse's head. The bit has a sharp impact on the mouth. The mouthpiece has a thickness of 14 mm and the scissors have a length of 145 mm. Includes curb chain.
A Pelham bit can be used with Pelham straps and single set reins as well as with double reins. The bit is suitable for strong and eager horses. The leverage makes it easier to set the horse deep; the longer the scissors, the sharper the effect.
With a double-jointed bit, the mouthpiece consists of three parts. The middle part of the mouthpiece lies flat on the tongue. This creates more pressure on the tongue than with a single broken mouthpiece. The thicker the middle part, the more pressure on the tongue.
Maintenance of bits
It is wise to clean the bit after each use, this can be done under the tap or in a bucket of water. A bit of good and extensive cleaning is best with a little lukewarm / warm water and a soft cloth. After washing, dry the bit with a dry cloth. Cooking your bit once a month in a pan of water ensures an optimal clean result and is the most effective way to get the bit clean.
- Never use soap and / or detergents in connection with allergic reactions when washing
- If the bit is very dirty, let it soak in hot water for a while
