Hi there,
does any one here know if you can use a pelham without the curb chain, and can someone please tell me what the curb chain is there for

The curb chain is just to apply a little extra pressure in the curb groove on the underside of a horse's jaw.
There's no real need to use one with any kind of shanked bit, but the reason many people use shanked bits it because the horse responds well (or they THINK he does) to the curb pressure.

Since you posted this in Training as well, I have answered in that section :)
