in search of the perfect bit

I currently have a 6 y/o warmblood who leans on the hyperactive side. I used to use a D ring snaffle on him which he is starting to ignore and run through. So I started using a rubber mullen pelham, but now he is getting behind the bit. I'm trying to find a happy medium between the two.

And I would like to be able to use it in the hunters and equitation devisions too.

Any suggestions?

I ride a jumper that CAN be soft in a full cheek snaffle or a Herm Sprenger, but if he wants to get hot or heavy will ignore it and run right through it. (like in the show ring or any other excitable moment!) I've tried him in some stronger stuff (like a pelham) but gets behind the bit or flips his head up and down. I settled on a sweet iron Dr. Bristol that he is amazing in. I've also tried a full cheek slow twist french link that isn't quite a strong but not bad. Both of these are legal in the hunters and eq.
