PelhamChoicesThe Mikmar Pelhams combine classic Pelham cheek pieces made of high quality stainless steel, and the lightweight mouthpieces are made of the special Mikmar alloy. A Pelham bit offers the rider the use of a snaffle and curb rein simultaneously.  The snaffle rein position which is the upper ring, provides direct pressure, aids in lateral flexion and lifts the horse’s frame. The lower ring rein position, aids in vertical flexion and activates the curb chain providing leverage when needed.
 
There are 4 mouthpiece styles and 2 cheek piece size choices. Use the convenient chart below to decide which Pelham is best for you.

5" Cheek
4" Cheek
The larger the cheek piece, the greater the leverage on the lower rein position.
The snaffle rein pressure does not change with cheek size.


The mouthpieces come in four styles: two solid and two jointed choices. 
Standard Mouthpiece
Standard Slanted Mouthpiece
Jointed Mouthpiece
Jointed Slanted Mouthpiece
The Standard mouthpiece offers the most leverage.
The Slanted mouthpiece has a lower port and provides less leverage due to its slanted position.   
The Jointed mouthpiece provides the most leverage available among the Jointed styles.
The Jointed Slanted mouthpiece provides less leverage due to its slanted position.   
Both Jointed mouthpieces have a lower port than the Standard mouthpiece and aid in lateral flexion.
