I had a horse that just couldn't handle the loose ring, he played with it and wasn't steady in the bridle. We switched to a somewhat narrow french link boucher, and it was like someone flipped a switch, he was light and responsive and soft. Might be worth a shot!
Showed up to third level in that bit, it is completely legal! And don't let the mini shank mislead you, there is no leverage action.
Best of luck!
