The NS Tranz Universal offers control without discomfort or severity. It is brilliant for faster work such as jumping as you can turn much more easily. The Universal also helps to eliminate the head toss when asking for a downward transition, or shortening in between fences. If you need to upgrade from a snaffle, it is highly recommended as it offers varying degrees of control. Also an excellent training tool prior to introducing the doubles for employing two reins and a curb strap.
