The Ultra Combination is definitely one of the most balanced of the combination style hackamore/bit designs. The leather covered bicycle chain noseband sits comfortably across the bridge of the nose and works the quick link comfort curb for front to hind control. The loose shank and limited draw gag work together for shoulder elevation and supple turns. This is a “My Choice” design for horses that have alleyway issues, as it provides lateral control to help move the horse into forward motion. An ideal barrel racing bit providing not only a balanced approach, but good rate and turn control throughout the course.
