My horse did this as well, it's so irritating! What I did to correct it was to use my forward driving leg aids. Each time he would pull the bit, I would squeeze him forward. After awhile, he began to associate pulling on the bit with having to work harder. Every once in awhile he'll take a dive on the bit but as soon as I apply those leg aids, he backs off for the rest of the ride.
