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 well....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
