okay i really appreicate everyones help. I want to get him used to the field for away barn purposes like hunter paces, cross country, ect. I would never recommend a stronger bit for any horse i didn't know well. He is a very muslular quarter horse. I do agree I probably need to work more on his basics. I have been just walking and trotting in the field the past few days. He has been doing okay, but when ever we canter or jump he gets excited. Im not looking for this to be a permanet bit, just one for when needed.

Then perhaps you should just work on circling when the horse decides that he wants to rush.

justdressage it...i am working on that. its more of a different situation. i understand i should use a stronger bit as a first resort of a problem. i have worked on it. the only way to even work on training is to use some disipline. im trying an elevator tommrow from my trainer. thanks everyone for the help ill keep you posted =]
