A pelham bit designed by Ross Ainsley, which provides instant and effective communication with your horse. The design incorporates three characteristics, which sets it apart from most other bits used in polo today:
1) Most modern bits are too light and remain up in the horse's mouth for too long. This bit has more weight to allow gravity to release the bit instantly, signalling to the horse the request or reward you need it to understand. This bit falls away immediately when given slack to do so.
2) This bit is also thicker than most pelham bits, creating an even pressure for optimal communication with the horse, while being softer on the tongue and mouth.
3) The wide curb chain protects the chin groove of the horse.
