I've had little experience with Pelhams. I finally have a safe and forgiving gelding and time to learn with one as we're moving up to higher classes. I've been playing around with the two sets of reins and I've got my hand position down, but now its time to actually buy the bit.
Basically I just want to know which pelhams you all have had success with. Mouthpieces, brands, etc. I'm going shopping with the team tomorrow and figured I'd look around, if I don't find one I plan on buying online just for convenience purposes.
And before you say it, I am an experienced rider, but I still have a trainer to help me. Last time I told someone I planned on getting a pelham I got the "You're-sixteen-and-shouldn't-be-touching-that-bit" speech. And while I by no means know everything, I have done some homework and like I said, have a great 50yrs+ trainer to help me with the transition from cowgirl to....dressage. Wierd.
