Seeing LOTS of Pelhams in the Olympic SJ ring
FINALLY, NBC showed a significant segment of Equestrian!! Yesterday, I got to see the medal round of Jumpers. I saw a LOT of Pelham bits, one Kimberwicke and even, (I think it was a Brazilian rider/horse) a mechanical hackamore?!? I even saw both reins of a running martingale run through to a Pelham--didn't know you could do that!--and I KNOW that I saw a convertor used.
I'm a fan of the Pelham bit, but I haven't been following INatl showjumping. Is this a trend? I'd be interested in hearing from you Jumpers, and your opinions on this. Thanks! =D
