Difference between Pelham bridle and snaffle bridle

I was looking around for a show bridle for Cinny since his is a bit old and I'm not sure how much longer it will last and I came across some on ebay that are great condition, known brand but say they are pelham bridles. What is the difference between a pelham bridle and a snaffle bridle? I like the look of some of the pelham bridles can a snaffle be used instead. I'm thinking I can, but something tells me I should ask before buying one.

The only differences I can see in it is that it comes with 2 sets of reins instead of only one and they are flat not braided. Same price for a spare set of reins? If there isn't really a difference, they may have to count me in on that one.

It's just a second set of reins. You can whack a snaffle on there no worries!

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

i'd guess it's due to the curb rein that's included. I can't imagine any other reason.

Pelham Bridle - one bit with a curb chain and with two reins sometimes ridden with roundings and one rein


Double Bridle - two bits a bridoon & a weymouth curb


And a snaffle bridle - one bit and no curbchain

The curb rein on a snaffle is always a little thinner than the snaffle rein. A normal bridle is used for both the pelham and the snaffle. Reins can be any type you want just as long as the curb is a little thinner than the snaffle. And is worm without a drop noseband, usually just a flat cavesson :)

Hope I helped :)

If you buy a "pelham bridle" (that's an odd term, never heard it befoe) you'll end up with an extra set of reins, that's all. And the extra set will be a skinny curb rein.
