They give a lot more leverage and if used correctly you can use the curb rein for downward transitions my horse is the same way! Ahah
And you can run your horse into the fence if you can't stop...thats what I do it helps! Even though it seems mean they will get the message
No no no!
The point is to have them go in the simplest bit possible. Leverage bits can be used on finished horses with finess, but bits are not brakes!
As already mentioned, if he is running through your snaffle, there's nothing stopping him from running through a pelham or any other bit.
Training is your answer. Get him stopping at the walk, then bring him to the trot. Lots of transitions.
Can you tell me what you do when you ask him to stop?
