The Shires Flexible Rubber Mouth Pelham can be a good alternative to a jointed bit for some horses. The flexible rubber mouth moulds around the horses mouth, giving this pelham the slightly reduced curb action of a jointed pelham, but with a far milder action in the mouth.
Flexible rubber pelhams are best suited to horse that have enough space for a large mouthpiece and are ideal for novice riders using a stronger bit for the first time as the mouth is mild. Pelhams are designed to be used with two reins, the 'snaffle' rein on the larger ring which should have a constant contact, and the curb rein is attached to the smaller loose bottom ring and is used when needed.
This Flexible Rubber Mouth Pelham has a small hole in the shank just above the curb ring for a lip strap, not essential but correct for showing and helps to keep the curb chain flat. If the rider wishes to use only one pair of reins, roundings can be used to join the snaffle and curb rings together and the reins go on the loop of leather to give an action on both mouthpiece and curb when the rein is pulled.
