Bit for my TWH

Trixie is 8 and is all go. I just got her and was using a medium port loose cheek bit on her to test her out. I found that she is very quick.. doesn't like to slow down a bit... and her mouth is VERY sensitive. She doesn't neck rein right now.. which I need to work on... but that's not a huge priority for me. Does anyone have a bit recommendation for a very sensitive mouth on a hyper, highstrung horse? If I did anything more than lightly touch her mouth, she started spinning like a top... not being ugly.. she was trying to follow what I was telling her.

Thanks!

This suggestion may be a little different, but we had an older lesson TWH that we used the following on, no bit to hurt the mouth, but the shanks can put a lot of pressure on the nose band when needed to slow down the spirited Horse

Korsteel Hackamore

We also used this hackamore on several other lesson horses so the beginners would not ruin the horses mouth



.

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones
