So I ride this horse, his name is Pie. He's a 14.3hh something. Right now we ride him in a happy mouth shaped mullen kimberwick.

My problem is, is that I don't believe this is the right bit for him. He bends a lot at the poll and doesn't respond well to the bit, as in he doesn't really have good brakes. He doesn't act mean or anything, a perfect gentleman when putting on the bit, but still he doesn't respond well or at all.
I personally think instead of bitting him up we should go to to a softer bit. I talked with my trainer about this and she said she thought it was a good idea and said maybe a slow twist or a double twisted wire.
I am open to hearing what people think, so if you think bitting him up may be a good idea I am all ears, but I am hoping to get some others insight on just what type of bit may be good for him.
