Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a Pelham and a Curb (Weymouth) bit?The difference between a Pelham and a Curb (Weymouth) is that the Pelham has two points of rein attachment while the Curb bit has only one, being designed for use with a Bradoon bit and double bridle. With the use of Pelham Roundings, some riders will choose to use just one set of reins instead of two. These leather attachments fix onto the Pelhams cheek to form a loop to which the just one rein is attached. The disadvantage of using Roundings is a less clearly defined action between the upper (Snaffle) and lower (Curb) action. A combination of the two actions is a more likely result.
