5-1/2" - Some wear - comes with curb chain
The Mikmar double jointed low port mouthpiece offers riders the benefits of a broken mouthpiece, while still using the traditional Mikmar mouthpiece style. The design of this mouthpiece helps with lateral flexion, and also contours to the individual horse's mouth.
The Mikmar Pelhams combine classic Pelham cheek pieces made of high quality stainless steel, and the lightweight mouthpieces are made of the special Mikmar alloy. A Pelham bit offers the rider the use of a snaffle and curb rein simultaneously. The snaffle rein position which is the upper ring, provides direct pressure, aids in lateral flexion and lifts the horse’s frame. The lower ring rein position, aids in vertical flexion and activates the curb chain providing leverage when needed.
