The pelham cheekpiece combines the effect of a snaffle and a double bridle. The bit has one cheekpiece but can be ridden with one or two reins. If you choose to ride with one rein, a pelham strap is needed to connect the bit rings to the rings of the shanks. The longer the shanks, the sharper the effect. The baby pelham has short shanks and therefore is less sharp than the normal pelham. A pelham bit is mainly used with strong horses, horses with too little space in the mouth for two mouthpieces or horses that have to get used to a double bridle.
The Inno Sense Port Hard is made of elastic synthetic material, which is slightly harder than than the Port Medium. The Inno Sense Port Hard is hardly flexible. This mouthpiece has a port that creates space for the tongue and decreases the pressure on the centre of the horse’s tongue.
