pelham vs rugby pelham

Hi everyone,

What is the differences in action of the rugby pelham to the normal pelham??

I'm the only bidder on a rugby pelham on ebay and only just realised that I thought it was a normal pelham. Looks like i'll be buying it but I want to know the differences in strength..
I goggled it but all that came up was how it looked like the horse is wearing a double bidle, so that info was useless because I couldn't give 2 hoots how it looks it's for xc and showjumping for control.
I will be getting my horse remouthed at the end of the year so this is just temporary.

Thanks in advance

From what I can see, the rugby pelham has additional rings attached to the shank level with the mouth


Whereas a regular pelham doesn't have those.


Don't ask me to explain why though, because I have no clue LOL.

I hadn't even heard of a "rugby" pelham until this thread so thanks for enlightening me some! I googled it for you and came up with this thread on another forum...looks like you're not the only one that's confused ;)

So far, all I've found is that it changes the look but the mechanics are apparently quite similar?

Hi,

I have always been told (and as always, stand to be corrected) that the action is similar with both bits, but the Rugby pelham was designed to be used with the 'snaffle' ring attached to another set of cheekpieces so that it appeared to look like a double bridle . We used it for those horses that are not happy with two bits in their mouth for the showring, no other reason than showring aesthetics.

That seems to be the consensus for what I found when I googled it as well, so I think you may be spot on! ;)
