    That's funny, around me most Pelham's are ported or broken mouth - I've never seen a mullen mouth one around here but would like that!

    I've seen people in the UK use them like that as you get some poll pressure and more control than a plain or straight snaffle but not as much leverage pressure as you get with a curb chain
    It could be argued that the port makes them harsher but I've known horses to be happier in a ported bit than they are in the nutcracker action of a jointed snaffle
    Yes Exactly!! It's like using a kimberwick or a pelham without the chain! It adds a tiny amount of poll pressure, just enough to help give the horse the idea to break at the poll.
    I'm not sure though how a ported or mullen mouth bit is harsher than a jointed bit? Maybe stronger than a french link? I'm not sure?

    I'm not sure either - mainly because different horses can go better in one or other. The break(s) in the snaffles might put less direct pressure on the bars and the tongue but if you start pulling too much on them the nutcracker action must make them harsher. I think the thing with the ported bits is that they are usually associated with leverage but I have a loose ring staight bit with a (very low) port that someone gave me ages ago and I've had a couple who disliked jointed bits and leverage that went well in it. I've no idea what its called.
