The Improver Ported Pelham

Designed specifically for:
  • The horse that needs their head slightly elevated and nose to come in
  • The soft horse that bumps the bit downwards when asking to collect up.  Also described as snatching the bit or diving into the bit.
  • The horse that doesn't enjoy pressure on their tongue
The mouthpiece on this Pelham has a very spacious and comfortable port, rotating separately to the Pelham action ensuring the tongue has minimal pressure, allowing the softer horses to work off the other pressure points on the Pelham.
The port and swivel combination work very well with any horse that doesn't enjoy tongue pressure.
Can be used with curb-chains, however, if a horse is very soft they can often remain in this bit without a curb.
Tip:
When training and setting up a horse that has not had a curb bridle on it before, we recommend giving the horse the opportunity to accept this Ported Pelham (and all curb bits) to get a good understanding over 4 to 6 weeks before much pressure is put on the horse.  We advise enjoying the bit without a curb-chain, from there move to a webbing or leather curb strap and finally a nice flat sitting wide curb.
We have had excellent results on our Ainsley Ponies when following this method.
