Northampton Leather English Bit Converters

Northampton Leather Strapgoods

Only the finest English leather is used in our Northampton English Leather bit converters resulting in bridles and strap goods that are extremely durable yet supple. White stitching makes these extra nice. Use to convert a 2-rein bit into 1-rein. It is a leather strap that attaches from the snaffle ring to the curb ring, onto which the rein is then attached to the loop made between the two rings. A bit converter is very helpful when riding the cross-country phase of eventing, so that a rider using a pelham does not have to keep track of 2 reins. It is also commonly seen used by children, who may have not yet become skilled enough to handle two reins with ease. Bit converters do diminish the rider's ability to apply the curb and snaffle functions of the pelham independently and discriminately, and thus is usually considered unsuitable for other types of riding; it is illegal in huntseat equitation, dressage, etc. Use on Pelhams, Kimberwickes, etc. Sold in pairs.
