If she had wolf teeth before you got her I would guess they really wouldn't have been able to have much sucess with a bit. But sometimes horses just don't do well with a bit and need a sidepull or some bitless contraption. But I would try the french link first.

My horse hates face pressure so I don't use anything but a bit so I am no help there. But there are several threads in this section on what people use for bitless and what they like and don't like about different brands and types.

While her teeth were just done? It does not mean that she may not have more teeth problems.

They could have cracked a tooth, adjusted the bite so that she is hurting with the bit, or she could even have cracked the bars in mouth too, at that time, or since then.

Also could have a twig caught in there too, or piece of hay, or thorn?

Saw one with twig stuck straight up into palate.

Could have something else going on, but could also be the metal? Are you coating with anything?

Can you get a picture of what she looks like in bit?

Could also be browband is too small from side to side? Or too close to eyes?

Horses make me a better person.
