So I use a Pelham on my gelding that LOVES to chew his bit, and the shanks on them, I have read somewhere that there have been instances that the loose ring on the shank has gotten caught on the incisors.
The article said that if you use a lip strap it keeps the horse from chewing the shank rings.
Is this true? I know it goes through the center ring on the curb chain and I have a curb chain, so would a lip strap stop him from chewing?
and I know that the lip strap also stops the curb chain from flapping around.

Thanks for the help!

He chews on the shanks of your pelham?? Huh, I've never seen that... Is it fitted correctly? The pelham was actually designed to be used with a lip strap. It keeps the shanks from moving around but I'm not sure it'll help in your situation. Either way, you should use a lip strap with your pelham. :)
