    ^^ Well, yeah because it hurts!!

    I'd work with a simple snaffle, and work on your leg cues, AND pressure from the bit. Eventually he will feel the leg pressure and know that that means you really DO want to turn. Added reinfrorcement.

    If you're just trying to turn his head, that's not going to do much. And curbs are not made for direct reigning. Period.

    Start from square one, with him and yourself.

    I sounds like you may need to start from square one with a simple snaffle bit (no shanks, that is).

    Has he always been like this, or is this a new habit? You might consider getting his teeth checked too, just incase he has something causing him pain or discomfort.
