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.
