Rugby Pelham with French Link
The french link rugby pelham has the kinder action of the french link mouthpiece which lessens the nutcracker action and prevents palate pressure. The broken mouthpiece of the french link rugby pelham can effect the way the curb comes into play and lessen the direct action of the curb.
Rugby pelham bits are designed to be used with two reins.
The small hole in the shank just above the curb ring is for a lip strap, not essential but correct for showing and helps to keep the curb chain flat.
Rugby pelhams are designed to give the appearance of the horse wearing a double bridle, useful for horses that are being shown but dislike or do not have enough room in their mouth for a double bridle.
