Pelham 55 McHardy
Cheek Pieces: The Pelham 55 has attachments for two reins, one near the mouthpiece and one at the end of the shank. These reins have similar action to the curb and bridoon reins in the double bridle. Some riders who are 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.
Mouth Piece: A horse shaking its head when bit pressure is applied or its tongue trying to escape the bit are classic signs the horse has a sensitive tongue. With this in mind the McHardy was created. It has a medium port creating space for the tongue, relieving pressure. The Buster Roller in the middle increases bar pressure, lifting the horse's head and giving more control.
