The MAX-Control is a double jointed bit which, at first glance, cannot be distinguished from other double jointed loose ring snaffle. However, it is a correction or training bit which locks at a certain angle and thus becomes a straight bar. The bit lies very well in the mouth when the horse is working properly; when the horse opposes the rider's hand the more intensive rigid effect occurs. The bit unlocks immediately when the contact gets softer.
The MAX Control Pelham provides a leverage effect on the poll; the amount of pressure can be varied by the different rein options available. If the rider only uses 1 set of reins on the middle ring, the pressure will be applied to the tongue. If the horse requires additional poll pressure, it is recommended to use another set of reins on the lower ring. This should help lower the horses head, and therefore less resistance to the hand. The curb chain will then come into action by deterring the horse from lowering its head too much.
Using 2 sets of reins will offer more precise and effective rein aids, however, if you only want to ride using 1 rein whilst maintaining extra leverage, a bit converter can be used. This attaches to both rings, and the rein attaches to it.
