Thats not a mullen mouth pelham. It has to have two rings for the reins. Plus it looks different.

I'm not sure. Is that a western bit?

Mm... I think that is a mullen mouth pelham. :) It does have two spots for reins.

OP, you're probably looking for a mullen mouth bit with O-rings or D-rings.



I don't know why, but they are called 'mullen mouth snaffles'. lol.

It is a mullen mouth western bit. Try googling "mullen mouth copper bit with shanks" or without shanks if you want.

I think the OP. The OP posted a western bit, you posted something that would not be seen in the western ring for a LONG time, lol! ;)
