Then I thought, what about just putting her in an english bridle w/ a copper roller bit maybe?
Sounds like she's not used to nose pressure. You can still train her, but she may like it less than bit. You just never know. Have you try french snaffle on her? Copper roller can make her happy too (I'm still thinking about trying one on mine).
I'm not against hackamores, sidepulls and such, but after trying all that on my horses they seem to prefer more the simple french snaffle (they are picky though, they don't like Korsteel). I know bitless bridle works for many people, but they are way too expensive to try and find out they don't like it. Lol!
