There are lots of things to look for. 1st of all that it is not to narrow or wide and then getting it at the proper position so it is not too low or high.
Sounds like you should enlist a local person that has some horse experience and make sure you are even getting close to having the proper bit and fit.

Just start in a properly fitting snaffle. If the horse hasn't had a bit it's not going to "like" any bit right away, that takes time and education.
