If I use a bit I use my Myler combination bit, it's definitely the best for me because it applies nose and poll pressure before suppressing the tongue. But the best kind of bit I could ever recommend would be no bit, but a hackamore or bosal. My horse is light, supple, responsive with a hackamore, I put metal in his mouth and he tosses his head. I don't blame him either! Haha I'd do the same thing! He listens, but he definitely makes it obvious that I'm not being fair to him. Just remember that with the bosal you don't need steady pressure but instead a "bump bump" pull when starting out. If you do any kind of ground work with him, you are working with the halter, same effect but instead you are sitting on him. Only makes sense to keep the metal out of his mouth.
