TRUST EQUESTRIAN INNO SENSE PELHAM BIT
For young horses and horses with a sensitive mouth, the bits in the Inno Sense line are particularly suitable. The bits Inno Sense bits are made of an elastic synthetic material. The synthetic material is FDA approved, which means the material does not contain plasticizers and is non-toxic. The bit lets young horses get familiar with pressure in the mouth in a pleasant manner.
The bits of the Inno Sense line can be divided into four groups :
Inno Sense Flexi soft bits incorporate a flexible mouthpiece. The bit has a flexible metal core. Horses ridden with a flexible mouthpiece follow the hand easily and accept the bit quickly.
The Inno Sense Mullen is a straight bar that bends forward lightly. It is harder than the Inno Sense Flexi soft, but because of the synthetic material also suited for horses with a sensitive mouth.
The Inno Sense Medium port is slightly harder than the flexi soft. This bit is suitable for horses with a thick or sensitive tongue.
And finally, there is the Inno Sense hard port bit. This bit is slightly harder than the medium port. Because of the shape, the middle of the tongue is more relieved. This bit is hardly flexible.
A Pelham bit can be made with short and long shanks. A bit with short shanks is called a baby pelham. A pelham with long shanks is a normal pelham. This bit can be used with one or two reins.
The pelham is often used with strong horses. Because of the leverage effect created by the sides, the bit is pretty sharp. By using this bit it’s easier to ride a horse rounder in the neck. The longer the sides, the sharper it is.
The pelham is not suitable for inexperienced riders or horses.
