    If he's a riding school horse, then you'd still need to check with the instructors.. just because you ride him the majority of the time, doesn't mean you can make such decisions without the permission of his actual owner. Maybe you are the actual owner, but it seems like you're just his main rider.. so I'd check it out with the barn owner. :)

    Also, if he starts backing up while you're riding him, I'd keep him backing up until you feel like he's learnt a lesson. That's what my instructor has always taught me to do, for many situations.. ie: he gets a little bit wound up and takes off with you on his back, get off, put a lunge line on him and canter him until he can pick up a nice, collected canter. :)

    He is mine :P I will defiantly ask the barn owner though just to confirm everything and it may be that I keep his current bit and just use the new one occasionally. Thank you for the help!

    If his bit is hitting his canines, you have it adjusted too loose. Tighten the headstall and it should rest above the canines. I never found those soft bits to work out that well. I guess some people like them.
