    If he's not responding to the snaffle, MAKE him respond to it. There is no reason to go up to a harsher bit. Try riding him in his halter, too.

    Try going into a Kimberwick for awhile, and then switch back to the snaffle. The horse I have now was in a tomb thumb before I got him, and when I put him in a snaffle he wanted to run through it. I put in him in the Kimberwick for a few days and worked on seat aids. Then we went back to the snaffle and he was much better.

    Green Broke
    Also, before asking the green horse I'm riding to whoa I get her puffing a bit first. This way she wants to stop when I say it, then she gets a short break standing still then its back off at the trot/canter for a side or two then woah and break time. They start looking forward to you asking. I know its useless to ask the mare to stop soley off my seat and voice until she has let off the extra steam. Good time to prefect transitions too ;)
