As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Kind, soft rubber jointed mouth that keeps the horse from leaning on the bit. The Korsteel Tom Thumb Jointed Rubber Pelham has 4" cheeks. 4", 4½", 5" or 5½". 18mm thick.

    Korsteel Tom Thumb Jointed Rubber Pelham is rated 4.7778 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bit!! I have had my mare for a little over a year. I was trying really, really hard to make a snaffle work for her. She is a 16 year old OTTB and we do H/J. She tries really hard to please but gets really excited when she sees the jumps and likes to get to them as quickly as possible... I reluctantly bought this bit after a friend (who also happens to judge at local shows) suggested it. The difference is like night and day! No more head-in-the-clouds, hollow back, running to the jumps as fast as we can. She now travels in a round, calm, collected frame on the flat and over fences and doesn't rush the jumps! I couldn't believe the difference! Definitely worth a try for a hollow backed horse!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit Many of our horses at the barn like this bit. It's a basic rubber pelham with a short shank.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm I'm using this bit on a young warmblood - he gets very strong with a snaffle. This bit allows me to get him to flex at the poll with very little effort on my part. He's very responsive!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product, fair price! I needed more control with my large Clydesdale/Thoroughbred cross and decided to give this jointed Tom Thumb a try. It has made a huge difference in his reaction time. I ask him for a correction and now he response appropriately! The quality is good and I believe the price is fair. Thank you SmartPak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality bit This is a standard Tom Thumb rubber pelham bit. Korsteel makes a quality product. Its a little more expensive than some other brands, but I didnt have a problem with that as it is backed by SmartPaks guarantee.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around great bit Good product. Nice rubber. True to size. The chain is a little long, but better to have too much than too little. You can just cut a couple links off. All around great bit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value My horse chews on it so the rubber is cracking. I have only used it a handful of times but I'm afraid it won't last very long. I don't fault the bit, I fault my mouth-y horse!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit This is a very comfortable bit. My sensitive horse loves it. No more fidgeting or headshaking.
