RoyalsRebel - I know exactly what you are saying. =) Trust me, going back to a snaffle was the first thing I tried.
JDI - His teeth were done just a couple of months ago and I'm about 98% sure it is not a saddle fit problem as I have no issues with him when I ride him in his curb with the English saddle. I have tried a single jointed loose ring, a french link loose ring, and a french link eggbutt per some recommendations on here as well as from my trainer.
Void - He seems to like the taste of sweet iron bits over stainless steel, I have noticed that. He accepts the bit better. But he's still no better under saddle.
Any suggestions are welcome. I'm kind of at a loss at this point.
One man's wrong lead is another man's counter canter.
