The revolutionary polyurethane mouthpiece in Apple Mouth bits is apple scented and easily accepted by any horse. This material will not peel or flake in the horse’s mouth. The Apple Mouth bit is longwearing, non-allergenic and stimulates salivation.
This pelham is fitted with a central rounded, egg shaped link.
Most horses readily accept this type of mouthpiece and are more comfortable in their mouths. There is no nutcracker action due to the central link, creating a continuous feel from one side to the other.
Pressure on the poll occurs when the curb rein of the pelham is engaged. This pressure is directly related to the length of the upper shank (purchase arm) in relation to the lower shank (lever arm).
Pressure is applied to the chin groove by the curb chain when the curb rein is used.
** No returns or exchanges are possible if there are chew marks on the mouthpiece.
