The Dever rubber mullen mouth Pelham is a very basic Pelham, and is very well suited to horses with a large tongue or small mouth. The mullen mouthpiece of this Pelham bit provides tongue relief and due to the ergonomic design, this Pelham bit provides little pressure to the bars and palate making it an all-round milder bit then the common jointed Pelham horse bit. This bit features rubber covering on the mouthpiece offering a warmer feel in the horse's mouth, promoting easier acceptance. This bit is often selected in more sensitive horses.?
The Dever Pelham horse bit is designed to be used in conjunction with two reins. This enables the rider to use the Pelham as a regular snaffle but if and when required, pressure can be applied to the second rein to increase curb and poll pressure helping the Pelham to come into effect. Pelham bits may be used with Pelham roundings but this defeats the object of having individual control over the mouthpiece and can lead to horses becoming un-responsive.
The Dever Pelham horse bit is made of a stainless steel that is rustproof with a rubber covering; please check the covering before and after every use as rubber does naturally wear with frequent use. It is also supplied complete with a curb chain and is available in a variety of widths.?
