Shires Copper Lozenge Sweet Iron Pelham Bit with Raised Ribs & Pelham Converters, 6”
The sweet iron and copper combination mouthpiece of this bit provides a warmth for the horse which encourages salivation and emits a pleasant taste. Raised copper ribs encourage salivation making this bit ideal for dry mouthed horses and also helps to encourage lightness for horses that lean on the bit.
Designed with a longer bit shank to give the rider more leverage.
Sold with leather pelham bit converters, making it possible to ride with a pelham bit while only using one set of reins.
Photo #1 shows the front of the bit. Photo #2 shows the back of the bit. The copper ribs are designed to rest on the horse’s tongue.
*Please note that there is a piece of clear tape going all the way around the mouthpiece on the left side of the bit in photo 2. (It’s attaching the orange price tag seen in photo 1.)
