About the Bit
Need control without severity?
The Tranz Angled Universal is an excellent step up from a snaffle. It has a gentle mouthpiece while subtly employing other pressure points to avoid offending the horse. Brilliant for faster work such as jumping, as it allows you to turn more easily and generally eliminates the head toss when asking for the downward transition, eg. when shortening before a fence.
This is a very popular bit and one you will find in most rider’s bit collections.

NOT recommended for
A Universal offers multiple rein options. The main large ring applies minimal poll pressure, working like a loose ring snaffle. The lower ring gives the rider maximum leverage, bringing the mouthpiece into play and applying pressure to the horse’s poll. We suggest using an equaliser or split reins on the main ring and bottom when first using this bit.
The addition of a Curb strap can be added on the cheek piece rings for increased leverage.

How it should fit
The Tranz Angled Universal should have 1-3mm gap between the lips and the ring to allow the ring to slide.

My gelding can get quite strong in jumping, yet other wise has a snaffle mouth. I found this bit brilliant as a step up to add more control during jumping and faster work. Number of different rein options makes it flexible to increase/decrease the strength required. My horse accepted this bit straight away, being soft and responsive, with no resistance at all. Best bit I've ever purchased! Highly recommended
Originally trialled this bit for my big horse as he has a sensitive mouth yet gets strong on course. I have retired him and decided to try it on my pony and found it really great as she tends to bring her head up when asked to slow and check before a fence. Good salivation and not too bulky looking eventhough she is a pony with a wide gob and needs the 5" width. Thanks Anita. Appreciate the advice in choosing this bit and will be shopping here in the future. what a great place to find the right bit for your horse!!! Cheers.
