A lot of times horses will put their tongue over the bit because they don't like the tongue contact. This can be a way the horse is telling you he wants more tongue relief in a bit. Maybe try experiementing with some different bits, and look into the Myler bits, they are awesome!

Thank-you all for your input into this!!! After reading all the replies....this is what I came up with: The bit is too low in his mouth (I have a new bridle and I kinda wondered if it wasn't quite fit right yet). Second, My hands are a bit heavy....something I KNOW I need to work on; just HOW to do that, I don't have figured out yet. And last....he may have been a bit 'bored' as he did this he was just standing there waiting for me to finish chatting with my husband.....he decided to entertain himself. So....thanks to all of your replies, I have a good start to correct this.
I love this Forum!!!!
Happy Trails
