80297P Neue Schule Waterford Pelham
Neue Schule Waterford Pelham
15mm thickness mouthpiece and 7cm cheeks length.
Do you need extra lift and control? This design is often sourced for more control during faster work. It is also extremely popular in the show ring especially with the cresty necked show cobs. It almost invariably gives the desired control, encourages freedom through the shoulder and assists in softening the neck promoting outline, flexion and bend. Incorporates our neater, elegant cheek design. As the Waterford is flexible and bends in every direction it usually suits all types of mouth conformation, including big, fat tongues. This slimmer, innovative Waterford mouthpiece features our ergonomic LipSMART shelf which usually eradicates the previously common problem of rubs.
The Neue Schule Salox Compound
The Neue Schule Salox is Neue Schules unique composition - This is a warmer softer metal with a very high copper content and Neue Schule additive to maximise on oxidation (Nickel Free). This promotes salivation, mouthing, acceptance and harmony. Many horses that have previously only been bittable in rubber or nylon have proven extremely comfortable in the Neue Schule Salox. All bits in the Neue Schule Collection have high density stainless steel rings, cheeks, etc., for appearance and durability.
The Action of the Pelham
The Pelham is a compromise between the Bradoon (Snaffle) and Weymouth (Double Bridle) Curb Bit. The Pelham exerts pressure on the poll, the curb groove and the mouth. It is common practice to run the curb chain through a curb guard in order to lessen the severity. It is used extensively and is available in a variety of mouthpieces. The Pelham should always be employed with two reins for the show ring. One does need to be methodical if trying out a pelham for jumping purposes. Some horses will not jump with a curb action. The curb action occurs when the horse is stretching out the neck prior to take off as obviously we are not going to "drop" the horse in the bottom of a fence and a contact is needed until one can give through the air. My advice would be to jump a small track first and if the curb action is going to back the horse off try an elasticated curb.
