Baby Pelham Leather - a baby Pelham with a leather mouth piece.
Mode of Action:
These bits act on three different points on the horse's head: via the tongue on the lower jaw, through the leverage of the cheek pieces on the neck and via the curb chain on the lower jaw. The rein aid is distributed over the various pressure points on the horse's head. This enables the rider to have better influence and control, e.g. with strong or stormy horses.
Correct basic training and rideability should be a prerequisite for using such bits. Since the horse's lower jaw is very sensitive and only covered with a thin layer of skin, a curb chain pad should always be used as a cushion.
The leather bits are a striking addition to the Trust Equestrian bits collection. The leather bits are hand crafted in the Netherlands for the perfect finish. The core of the bits is made of reinforced nylon. The leather stitched around the nylon core has been tanned naturally without the use of chemicals. As the horse salivates, the saliva softens the bit, making it more comfortable in the horses mouth. The flexibility combined with the taste of leather makes the bit ideal for horses with a sensitive mouth. A unique feature to the Trust leather bits is the round construction and the flexibility the leather mouthpiece has to offer.
In addition, we notice that mares like the taste of the leather and therefore accept the bit well.
Tip: The leather bit is easy to keep flexible by regularly smearing it with some olive oil.
Note: make sure that the stitching points to the outside, towards the opening of the mouth.
