My mare's big Percheron head needs a big bit. We have an egg butt snaffle but need a pelham. Trainer wants a happy mouth but I cannot find one this big. Any suggestions for sources for this type of bit.
Thanks!

Try searching eBay. I purchased a 5" rubber mouth Pelham off there for $10. I'm not sure how lucky you'll be finding one in your size but it's worth a shot.

Chances are you'll have to order (if you hadn't already considered that :p). There are some draft-specific stores which combat that precise problem :)


I think the one you'll find the most helpful is "drafttack.com" and they actually have the rubber-mouth bits (a happy mouth without the brand name :)) in a Pelham, and it comes in 6" and 6 1/2"

They have a ton of options in the Pelham-style, plus many other types of bits. Even different shank sizes in the rubber-mouthed Pelham :)
The link is here: PELHAM BITS

P.S. both links are to riding bits, which is what I assumed you were looking for, but they have driving bits too :)


If they don't have what you want, then another is "mydrafthorse.com" The exact link to the riding bit section is here:

They also have a ton of neat accessories that I couldn't find anywhere else when I looked into driving for my mare :)

I hope I could help! Good luck! :D
