Besides the materials Sweet Iron and Inno Sense, we have the leather TRUST bits.The leather TRUST bits are particularly suitable for horses with a sensitive mouth. The reason for this is the flexibility of the bit in combination with the taste of the leather. The saliva production softens the leather bit and makes it more pleasant for the horse. The bits are provided with a core of reinforced nylon. The leather is handstitched around the core and naturally tanned without any chemicals. Our experience at TRUST taught us that especially highly sensitive mares accept this bit very well.

A Pelham is fundamentally a bit with both a snaffle action and a curb action. It is an attempt to provide the benefits of a double bridle without the complexity of needing two bits, as well as the versatility of different categories of bits all rolled into one. Most Pelhams look like a curb bit with an added ring right at the mouthpiece for a snaffle rein. Like a curb, if a rein is attached at the end of the curb shanks, they need to be used with a curb chain to be effective. Because the snaffle rings require the cheeks above the mouthpiece to be longer than on a typical curb bit, the curb chain often ends up sitting higher than it should, which can be corrected by running the curb chain through the snaffle rings.

A Pelham can be used with a variety of rein arrangements. Two reins can be used so that the rider may in theory have both a snaffle and a curb rein. In reality, neither can really be used independently, as with a double bridle, nor will the action of each be as effective. The two reins can also be joined together before reaching the rider’s hands through use of a divided rein, or with a converter strap, also known as ’roundings,’ which is a typical arrangement for children’s ponies. The bit can also be used with just a single rein, either at the snaffle ring or the curb ring, depending on the desired action. As with anything that tries to perform multiple functions, neither of these arrangements is as effective as when an actual snaffle or curb is used, but the versatility is sometimes desirable, especially with lesson horses.

You like the bits we are offering, but you are not sure if your horse will like them and it would be helpfull for you to test a bit.
Well, this is possible.
It works like this :
1. You place an order and send us at the same time an e-mail (  that you would like to test a bit. We receive the order and the e-mail. It is important to do it at the same time otherwhise we can't know you want to test.
2.  We send the bit to you, you can use it freely for two weeks.
3. If you decide to buy the bit you ordered, you send back the test bit and we send your order. You just pay the shipping costs to send it back yourself without any extra charge.
If you decide that you don't want to buy the bit you ordered, you send back the test bit, pay the shipping costs for sending it back and we will refund you minus € 10 for administrative costs.
The test bit has to come back in good shape (of course used, but not broken). If we don't get the bit back three weeks after sending it, we will keep the order amount paid.
Any questions ? Feel free to ask.
