    Default Neue Schule Universal bit

    Is this bit good? Need a gag action for xc How strong do you find it to be? I have just enough breaks in a loose ring snaffle but would like a little more steering and a gag action.
    Would you advise roundings or single rein on the gag ring?
    Can you put a single rein on the snaffle ring combined with cheek piece through top poll ring?

    Any advice appreciated!

    I love this bit, and use it for exactly the reason you state above, I have just about enough control in a snaffle but it is HARD work, whereas in the universal I can take a check and he listens, without him slamming on the brakes or me having to haul at him. I bought a cotswold sports version and has been great, I have now picked up a proper NS one on ebay that is aurigan - I usualy ride on the flat in a NS lozenge snaffle and know he like that mouthpiece and metal etc.
    I personally tend to use one rein, on the gag ring for XC, and fast work/jumping on grass, and then on the snaffle ring for jumping on a surface, everyday hacking. I am thinking of trying roundings when I get round to getting some!!
    But yes, highly recommended and I think a fair few fans of it on here.

    Got both the KK and NS versions. KK far superior quality in my opinion (but then again so is the price!)
