A swales bit has the effect of a double bridle, but is less complicated. The loose rings over the mouthpiece emphasize the leverage.
The strength of the impact is determined by the type of mouthpiece and the length of the shanks. Swales Bit, 3-in-1 pelham A swales bit is also called a Pluko Bit and has the effect of a double bridle, but is less complicated. The Swales has loose movable rings over the mouthpiece for attaching the cheek pieces and does not exert pressure behind the ears, emphasizing the action on the shanks and causing leverage. The longer the shanks, the greater the leverage. The Swales 3 in 1 pelham provides greater leverage than a traditional pelham and is used in combination with a curb chain or chin strap. The Swales 3 in 1 pelham is designed to provide control for strong horses that tend to hang on the hand. A Swales bit can be used with 2 reins, one rein on the loose rings for a soft support and the other rein on the bottom ring for leverage, or with one rein by means of a connection strap (Bridge). The Swales 3 in 1 pelham is not suitable for inexperienced riders or horses, this bit can work quite strongly.
