    Lol, you should do it!! :)

    Ok, if you can find a better bit, would you mind just putting it out for me :) Oh and I have the pelham and curb chain that's the same as the one in the pics, in my bag... took it home to wash it. :)

    Let me ask you this. What if it came into fashion for riders to be wearing something that is very uncomfortable to them? Like a certian thick fabric for pants or a jacket? Would you wear it or keep to the things that you know you can perform your best in? IMHO, you shouldn't just go to the very harsh bit for "looks". It's like straping your horse's head to it's chest with draw reins and martinglaes for a "head set". It's just not right. If that is what a judge wants to see, a horse that has to have a strong, harsh bit in their mouth, to win, I would seriously rethink if they have the best intentions of the horse in mind.

    First - We do wear thick, uncomfortable fabrics and hot fabrics on stinking hot days. I think i've almost gotten heatstroke waiting in the line-up.

    Secondly - Ridden on the snaffle rein it will be no harsher than her snaffle. She won't be using the curb rein.

    What do you think about dressage where it is compulsory to use a harsher bit, two bits for that matter when you reach a certain level? Would you stop showing?

    I ride in a pelham and love it. Most of the time the reins are in the snaffle position but if I want more bit I can switch the reins to the curb setting. The bit is a Billy Allen mouthpiece, steel, about 7/16 diameter.
    It is compact, not much mechanical advantage in the curb setting but enough to activate the curb strap.
    I love this bit and if I can only have one bit this is my choice

    Well I see what you saying stormyblues, but I agree with what wild_spot said.

    I rode her in the pelham yesterday and she went well, when I first put it on she was a bit like.. wth? Is this thing in my mouth, I just let her stand for a while, while she got used to the bit and I just was talking to her.. When she was fine with it.. I jumped on, bareback as I had limited time and I had to wash her.

    She went well. I just did walk and trot and I little bit of canter.

    And for the show because it's her first time and my first time, riding in a pelham and riding with two reins, I've put exactly the same type of reins on but on set are brown and one are black. :) (pretty genus I thought) hehe

    Pelhams are awesome <3 My horse had a problem with going like a giraffe and this bit is the only bit that will aid in relaxation of the jaw

    I use a Pelham with a curved mouth piece (not a port bit), and it works WONDERS on my gelding! Me and him will most defiantly be using this for hunter/jumper!
    Here's the bit, and for those who think im horrible for using a sing jointed Pelham:

    strategically crafted with curved mouth bars that eliminate the "nutcracker" action and stop the bit from hitting the roof of the horse's mouth. The curved shape also allows room for the horses tongue and eliminates interference that conventional bits cause.

    hope this helped!
