It can be many things. Stress or pain are common ones. That and if the horse isn't used to a bit they can chew. But my gelding chews on his bit and we believe it's because he enjoys playing with it. It's not a bad thing to chew on the bit if it's because of boredom. Chewing makes my horse salivate, which is good. He has a very soft subtle mouth and it helps.
But if you don't know why your horse is doing it get your horse checked out, see if it is pain. Get his teeth done etc.
