I have 5 year old project horse. I've had her for about 8 months now. When I got her she was green broke & had a lot of bad habits. We've worked through most of them. However, when I get her up to a canter she starts fighting the bit. Be it in the arena or on the trail. I can get her to turn, but it is extremely wide. She pulls the bit, head tosses & doesn't watch where she is going.
When she is at a walk or trot, she responds nicely. I ride her in a a D ring snaffle and what I was told is a reining bit (its a snaffle with about a 1 inch shank. She seems to respond about the same in both bits. I'm what I would consider a advanced beginner. I've been told I have a good seat & know how to respond when the S%*& hits the fan. I don't have a lot strength in my one leg because of an injury so my leg cues aren't that great.
Any suggestions to make her respond better.
