A gentle training tool with a bit of extra help. The NS Tranz mouthpiece is ergonomically designed for both comfort and communication. When a contact is taken, the Tranz Angled Lozenge rolls down onto the centre of the tongue, the ‘sweet spot’, enhancing feel and responsiveness, thus a higher level of communication through the rein is achieved. The arms are slightly curved and of an oval profile. This oval design takes up less room between the tongue and upper palate, whilst offering a similar weight bearing surface from the horse’s perspective as thicker, circular mouthpieces.
The NS Tranz D-Ring is excellent for directional control and exceptionally good for tight turns during faster work as the mouthpiece should not slide across the mouth. It is also safer for young horses as it should not pull through the mouth in a panic situation. The NS Tranz D-Ring is beneficial for children or novice riders who may not be sufficiently experienced in supporting their inside rein. Good for dressage as it gives the rider greater shoulder control on a circle and helps set up the bend when changing the rein or with lateral work. The stability the NS Tranz D-Ring offers is often useful for horses that are overactive in the mouth in a loose ring design.
