If you would describe your horse as the following:
- Inconsistent in the contact.
- Sensitive but still strong.
- Doesn’t seek the contact towards the bit, gets high in the neck.
- Drops the contact and feels unstable.
Gustav is constructed with a 100% super smooth surface, even around the joints which are designed to never interfere with or push against the palate. It is a very comfortable bit that shapes naturally around the tongue and relieves the bars from constant pressure.
The straight, slim design enhances the aids, creating more direct and precise communication than ever before.
The Baby Pelham sidepiece creates a frame feeling for horses who have a tendency to become unstable but still strong.
We recommend using the Baby pelham with a delta bridle or two reins, one in the large fixed ring and one in the small ring.
With two reins, you can easily regulate how much leverage you want from the bit by shortening, or lengthening, the rein that is attached to the bottom ring. With more leverage, you get a slightly lower neck and more effect, with less leverage you can get the horse a bit higher in the neck with less effect. If you use Fager’s adjustable delta, you have the same choice without having to use 2 reins.
This design acts as a curb version of a Baucher bit.
