Offers control without discomfort or severity. Although single jointed, the NS Demi-Anky is ergonomically designed to eradicate the nutcracker action and consequent evasions that the traditional straight-armed single jointed snaffle often causes. 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.
