I like correction bits cause each side moves independently, it's something to look into!

Do you have someone who would let you borrow bits?

I agree that a correction bit is a possibility. I would look into seeing if he has a shallow pallatte. If it's shallow, single jointed and ported bits will be uncomfortable to him. He might like a dogbone bit, or a bit with rollers.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Do you use this bit with a curb chain?

^ Any shank bit should be ridden with a curb strap otherwise it takes away from the curb action.
