Cambridge Rugby Pelham
Korsteel Cambridge Rugby Pelham
The rugby pelham bit is often used in showing as an alternative to a weymouth and bradoon. It applies a variety of pressures which all work together and therefore is a very popular bit. This bit should be used with two reins, the first rein attaches to the snaffle ring and the second rein is attached to the ring on the lower shank. When the first rein is used the bit acts like a hanging cheek snaffle, when the second rein is used it increases leverage, lip pressure and the curb chain also applies pressure.
Ideal for horses that have a large tongue or small mouth. The Cambridge (ported) mouth is a very mild mouthpiece as it has very little movement which means the pressure doesn't change much
