The cheeks have a good lateral guiding effect which enhances the response of the horse on the outside rein when riding bends and circles • The leverage effect is not very high. It can be increased however when used with bit keepers, which keep the bit more fixed in the mouth • Full-cheek-snaffles have proven to be especially good for training young horses and lungeing work. Benefits of a Pelham Bit: • Can be ridden with one or two sets of reins • Leverage bit putting pressure on the bars of the mouth as well as the poll • Exact and effective responsiveness • Only if you use a Pelham with two reins, you can take advantage of the bit to its full extent. With the rein in the upper large ring, called the snaffle-rein, the action of the bit is similar to an Egg-But-Bit or a Loose-Ring-Snaffle. • The lower rein, called the curb rein, which is attached to the lower end of the shank, is used for its curb action with a leverage effect, applying pressure on the poll. • Using the Bit with a bit converter and only one rein minimizes its effect. A famous German Riding-Instructor (Trainer) once told me, using a bit converter when riding with a Pelham is like driving a car and holding the hand break at the same time. • The special features of a Stübben STEEL tec Pelham are its short shanks of only 5cm ca. 2 inches. This reduces the leverage, but allows a quicker more direct action between reins and mouthpiece. (Standard Pelhams have shanks with a length of 7cm or 2.3/4 inches). • The immediate response is especially helpful when show jumping, particularly when the course has many tight turns. • The flat curb chain hooks prevent the horse’s lips from being pinched. • Furthermore, our curb chain, with flat hooks, is easier to adjust to the each horse’s chin, because you don‘t have to twist it like a conventional curb chain, so it can lie flat in the chin groove Stübben Steeltec quality: • No rough edges that could hurt the horse's mouth • Long durability due to selected materials • A special processing technology ensures that bit holes and link pieces remain intact for longer
