Rubber Kimblewick with Slotted Cheeks Pelham Curb Bit 5" & 5.5" Jumping Bit
Known as the "Spanish jumping bit". The "D" ring is offset, so the bit mouthpiece is on the upper part of the flat side of the D, creating a small amount of leverage, supported by a curb chain. This allows the Kimblewick to have a mild curb bit effect.
Like the pelham and curb bits in general, the Kimblewick has bit shanks with purchase arms. However, unlike these other bits, its shanks have no lever arm. This is a slotted Cheek Kimblewick which provides various options of curb action as the reins can be fitted to slide along the “d” ring or in either of the fixed slots
Depending on the position of the rider's hands, the Kimblewick has different effects when the rein is allowed to slide freely along the curved portion of the D-ring. If the rider's hands are held high, there is no leverage effect. If the rider's hands are low, the slight leverage effect can be used. The slots in the curved portion of the ring are there so that the rein may be fixed into one position. This increases the curb effect, especially when the rein is placed on the lower of the two slots.
