    help please

    I have got a horse not long ago and he was great before I got him since I got him home I notice his bit does not look right. What they gave me with the horse. Also notice when you put it on he chomps on it and he plays up rideing him . He does not like it and wants me to stop. I have done some pic what you think.

    It looks too small for him. Measure the mouth piece and then try a new bit a half inch longer.

    That bit is causing 2 wrinkles to form. I go by the 1 wrinkle for a snaffle bit. It also looks too narrow for his mouth.

    Try a wider bit and lower it a hole or two.

    I thought that to. But the people I got him from say that's the same as the one I rode him in on the day don't believe them and he is not happy when rideing him. He was uptight and just wanted me to stop he went to the gate telling me please stop he

    Have you checked his mouth for any sores? Had a vet look at his teeth? He might have sharp teeth that are bothering him, or might have wolf teeth that the bit is hitting and it's hurting him.

    Before riding him again, I'd have his mouth checked by a vet to rule out any issues there first.

    Then move onto changing the bit to something that he likes and is comfortable in.

    I agree with the others, the bit looks too narrow and it looks to be adjusted too high as well.

    I have had his teeth done and all ok. When I rode him for the trile he was great even watched them tack up and he was not chopping or nothing. I have a feeling its the bit as also it lose ring and the are right against his lips so thing its pinching him. And there is no gap as you can see.

    I feel they did not give me the same bridle and bit as he was good and none of his chomping or out. And the vet is happy with his teeth . They have found a cracked tooth but right back and they have sorted it out and said it will not course problem.

    Whethter it was his original bit or not, it is both too narrow and too high in his mouth. Make these adjustments, and if there is no improvement, you will know it is another issue. You will have, however, made his mouth more comfortable along the way.
