The Jointed Mouth Pelham is professionally designed for superior control. This bit operates as both a direct action or leverage bit when using a curb strap or chain. With pressure on the first or top rein, it works as a direct action bit, exerting the same amount of pressure on the mouth as on the reins. With pressure on the second or bottom rein, it works as a leverage bit, tilting the mouthpiece forward and applying pressure to the parts of the mouth, curb and poll. Convert this bit for use with one rein by adding "Bit Converter Straps", our #01068.

great bit


i use this on my half arab to do eq. this bit is perfect if you dont want to saw on the reins every so often and give subtle cues. it has that extra leverage and subtleness. i have really enjoyed this bit since i've gotten it!

arab lover



Good price, well put together


Good price on a good bit. Shank length isn't quite long enough to look right on a saddle seat horse, would go for the longer length shank.

What bits are made of...

If you have any questions about this product or a type of bit, please contact us at 1-800-365-1311 or service@sstack.com
Stainless Steel

Bits are most commonly made of stainless steel. Stainless steel can be cleaned and polished repeatedly without damaging the finish. It is strong, durable, and flavorless and does not impact salivation. Some stainless steel mouths are inlaid with copper.


Copper encourages salivation to increase the sensitivity of the horse’s mouth. It warms up quicker than stainless steel in cold weather.

Sweet Iron

Sweet iron is cold-rolled steel. The material appears rusty after repeated use. This oxidation tastes sweet to the horse and increases salivation.  


Rubber softens the action of the bit as it is softer than traditional metals. Rubber-covered bits are generally thicker than metal.   


Aluminum is lightweight and easy to maintain.


Plastic bits are softer than traditional metal bits and they are durable. Many plastic bits are scented or flavored.

Nickel Silver

Nickel silver is a nickel alloy, also known as German silver. It encourages salivation for a more sensitive and supple mouth.
