Sounds like he's locked up in the jaw. What type of bit are you using? I realize D-ring snaffles are popular in the hunter ring, but maybe try a thick O-ring for awhile. While the D-ring actually encourages a tight jaw, the O-ring does the opposite. I recently switched my own horse and saw and instant change. Do lots of bending, circling and suppling to try to get him to unlock his parts so to speak.
