Ok, I'm going to answer your question here. Not going to tell you what to do. You asked a question, I'm going to answer. Was at a trainers barn the other day (a well respected and very knowledgeable trainer) and she was showing me her saddles and tack, I saw a bit, asked what it was and she said its called a lifter bit and that you can only get them down in the states. So go online to some tack stores down south and have a look. I might have a look for you too.

Try these two links, I actually think the second link will take you to what you're looking for:

Barrel Racing Bits :: Sharon Camarillo Collection :: Sharon Camarillo's Barrel Racing Superstore

713 Short Lifter, Sharon Camarillo :: Barrel Racing Bits :: Sharon Camarillo Collection :: Sharon Camarillo's Barrel Racing Superstore

Also, your trainer may have had more in mind with choosing a lifter bit other than getting this horse to whoa! It may be to pick his front end up as he may be leaning on your hands.....he won't be leaning on you anymore.
