Mikmar Pelham Bit with Slanted Mouthpiece
The Mikmar slanted low port mouthpiece positions our bits with swept back shanks, resulting in less leverage than our Standard Mouthpiece. This mouthpiece option is more forgiving and protects the horse's mouth from heavy hands, but is still very effective.
The 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.
