The Pelham 55 Elliptical Comfy has attachments for two reins, one near the mouthpiece and one at the end of the shank. These reins have a similar action to the curb and bridoon reins in the double bridle. Some riders, not adept at handling two sets of reins, prefer to use rein connectors, leather loops which connect from one ring to the other on the bit shank. The rein is then attached to this rounding.
The Pelham 55 has the shortest shank (55 mm) out of our range, this will soften poll pressure and leverage on the mouthpiece and curb.
It is supplied with curb chain and hooks.
The Elliptical is a 45 mm lozenge, it is stronger than the Control Plate due to it having a smaller surface area. Consequently, a horse using his tongue as a means of pushing against the bit and therefore taking control, will draw back and tuck his chin in, coming back to a better point.
The Comfy mouth piece is curved more than the conventional, which reduces pinch and pressure points on the bars.
All Bomber bits are made from blue sweet iron, because it oxidises easily, encourages salivation, helps bit acceptance and is warm and sweet. *Please note that due to the oxidisation the blue will fade with use.
