A kimblewick is a hanging D with a curb chain that acts like a pelham with a milder effect and is used with one rein.
The strength of the impact is determined by the mouthpiece type, the placement of the reins and the curb chain.


A Kimblewick is a hanging D-ring snaffle with a curb chain that functions as a kind of pelham, but with a milder action, and it is used with one rein. This cheekpiece has 2 slots for attaching the rein. The leverage effect becomes sharper as the rein is attached to a lower slot.

The Kimblewick bit is always used in combination with a curb strap or curb chain.

The Kimblewick bit is mainly used for strong horses that need to get accustomed to a leverage action. Since the rider can choose the degree of leverage effect, it allows for a gradual increase or decrease in the level of leverage action. It is also possible to attach the rein normally to the D-ring, in which case the bit has no leverage and functions as a regular D-ring snaffle. This is ideal when using the same bridle on different horses. The Kimblewick provides the rider with more control over the horse than a standard snaffle.

The Kimblewick is often used in sports by professionals. It is a cheekpiece that must be used with care. The bit has a lever effect, making it suitable only for horses that are strong in the hand. The horse should have a stable foundation before being ridden with a Kimblewick. At HorseOnline, you can test the bit before buying it. A Kimblewick is FEI-approved but is only permitted for use in show jumping competitions.
