Trust pelham jointed locked

€104.96

Trust pelham jointed locked. The locking centre joint and curved mouthpiece of the Lock Up pelham are designed to remove the nutcracker action of a conventional single-jointed pelham, so this bit will bear less pressure on the bars of the horse’s mouth. The mouthpiece cannot bend beyond a certain point, so it remains in a curve in the mouth, rather than forming a V-shape that could rub the top of the horse’s palate. A pelham gives cheek, curb and poll pressure and is suited for strong horses. It is used with a curb chain which comes included with the bit.


A baby pelham like this bit is slightly more friendly than a regular pelham.


All Trust bits are made from blue sweet iron, because it:



  • oxidises easily

  • encourages salivation

  • helps bit acceptance

  • is warm and sweet


Shank size: 70mm

Sweet iron will rust when it comes into contact with (air) humidity; the surface rust tastes sweet and naturally stimulates the saliva production. This will cause the horse to salivate more which in turn encourages better acceptance of the bit. The rusting process (oxidation) changes the blue colour of the TRUST-bit to a brownish-grey. If a sweet iron bit is not used for a while, an orange-brown rust layer may develop on the mouthpiece. Simply remove this by wiping the bit with a damp cloth.

How to measure your bit

The current bit size is often used to order a new bit. We will explain how to measure this below.

  • Measure the bit between the rings.
  • Bits from the brands that we sell have exactly the size that you measure between the bit rings. Do you have a bit from another brand? Measure this between the rings and if this is for example 12.5, you also order the new bit in that size.

    Note that bits with longer shanks such as hackamore combi bits need more space so that they do not damage your horse.
