Weymouth: The weymouth is an English leverage bit. It is the curb bit component of the double bridle used in saddle seat riding and on upper level dressage horses.
- The Weymouth looks similar to a pelham, but it features only one bit ring (at the bottom of the shank) and therefore operates with only one rein.
- It’s available in several mouthpiece configurations, particularly various ports.
- When part of a double bridle, the Weymouth is adjusted slightly lower in the horse’s mouth than the separate bradoon or snaffle component.
