The bit natisha posted is great and def worth a try imo. My OTTB hates any jointed snaffle and will rear - single or double jointed. Even french link he hates. He used to go in a mullen snaffle (no port) and mullen pelham for OF and loved it, and now goes in a myler 3-ring with nose pressure which he likes bc it has very very little pressure on his mouth and works almost more like a hackamore (he's also advanced in his training and the basic mullen wasn't refined enough to fine-tune queues).

Where do I find this???? I have the Myler comfort snaffle with shanks but need an english style one for arena work and I don't really want to pay for a Myler again but I can't find anything similar. I would prefer a D-ring or full cheek.

Thanks guys, I do have a low port curb that I bought for him, but I haven't ridden him since I got it. I also have a oval mouth but I haven't tried that on him. I'm going to put the curb on his bridle and try it tomorrow. I didn't want to change the bit immediately since I wasn't completely sure if it was the bit or just him being lazy and annoyed about having to work but now that the previous owner has also said it doesn't like a snaffle I'll just use the curb.

Someone mentioned that the lose rings might have been pinching, but I was using a bit that fit well and bit guards as an extra precaution. The old owner said he tried him in a few different bits before using the low port and sticking with that one.

Maybe like this? The link has a bunch of bits to choose from. Watch the sizes, this one is small. Hope this helps.
You could try to Google for the best price but I've never seen any really cheaper than others.
