A pelham bit will help you hold your horse's head up, which is very useful when you have one that bucks. The trade off is that you need to have a strong enough leg to back up the amount of pressure you use to pull his head up. This is not my first choice, unless you have a hot horse who just throws his head down to buck. My first choice is to use a lighter bit and work on kicking your horse forward. When they are moving forward, they can't buck as easily.
