The Shires Tom Thumb Rubber Jointed Pelham is a covered bit that is made milder and gentler in the horse’s mouth with the rubber over the stainless steel core. The shorter shanks of the Tom Thumb Pelham exert a milder leverage action on the horse. The rubber covering over the single jointed mouthpiece makes the bit softer and thicker for the horse. Many sensitive horses that are opposed to the cold feel of solid metal will prefer the feel of the rubber instead. The single jointed mouthpiece has a nutcracker type action that increases the pressure on the bars and lessens the pressure on the centre of the tongue. This action is also preferred by some horses. The cheekpieces of the bridle are attached to the upper ring on the sides of the bit. This causes pressure to be felt at the poll when there is pressure applied to the reins. Two reins are needed for the Tom Thumb Rubber Jointed Pelham by Shires, or a bit converter needs to be in place to make this bit usable with a single rein. The curb chain should be tightened so that it is only felt when the bit rotates in the mouth approximately 45 degrees. The Shires Tom Thumb Rubber Jointed Pelham is available in different sizes.
