Gently Ported Swales Pelham 14mm, available in sizes 5″ – 6″ in 1/2″ increments.
The Swales Pelham
The Swales Pelham is designed to give control specifically for strong horses that are inclined to lean down. It is not suitable for a Novice rider or horse that does not fully understand the aids. It is extremely popular bit with the showing and driving fraternity and is often used in other disciplines for faster work on an experienced horse that is “over enthusiastic. This is the only Pelham that removes poll pressure (the head lowering aid) as the cheeks are attached to the inner rings. That emphasis the action on the curb and exerts more pressure on the jaws causing the lifting action. The mouthpiece we have incorporated is a very gentle upover curve that allows tongue room and gives gentle bar pressure. The Swales is a traditional design that has proven extremely beneficial in the right hands over many years.
