I would have the vet out to check his teeth, just to make sure he's not in any pain. If he has any wolf teeth coming in, have them pulled.

I would also work him on the ground some, teaching him to come around and turn to bit pressure with you walking beside him or behind him (ground driving).

You might consider getting a bit that is a 3-piece mouth or something like a comfort Myler. That will be more gentle on his mouth, but still give a good clear signal.

Somethin like this:
Reinsman Dr. Bristol O Ring Snaffle Bit
Myler 2" Dee Mullen Barrel Bit by Toklat
Myler 2" Dee Dog Bone Bit with Roller
Metalab Stainless Steel Eggbutt Bit with Oval Mouth by Partrade
