You are opposed to the slow twist? I know it's not legal for dressage.

Well , for starters, try the french link.

In other ways, you would need to work on learning how to keep him light and responsive to a bit.
I rode a few times in a myler like that one and I did not like it very much. But, usually, one can adjust and getting a horse to not brace against you has more to do with having good hands than having a good bit.

If you're tired of daily dull work, then go horse riding.

Not opposed to it. Just don't want to use it myself because it's not legal for dressage and also I know it is my hands too. But at the same time, I just want to change it.

That bit feels like I'm riding her in a halter sometimes. Takes a lot of work to have her pay a little more attention.
