Turning???

I would like to know if anyone has any other type of training technics about getting there horse to turn. One of my horses is a little stuborn and dose not like to turn. I have tryed EVERYTHING I know and went out and spent about $150.00 on some bits and nothing has worked. If you have any ideas please share.

Exactly what are you doing right now to ask your horse to turn? That will help me to understand what you're doing wrong. If you're just relying on your hands to ask the horse to turn, that's not good. You HAVE to have control of the horse's SHOULDER to turn, not the nose. It doesn't matter if you pull 'till you're blue in the face, because a horse can always bulge their shoulder out and follow that instead of their nose. Make sure you're asking with your rein, and blocking that shoulder with your leg aids. I would stick with a simple snaffle - of better yet a french link - and work on what's wrong rather than switching bits; this will just "cover" the problem. When your horse won't even turn, it's a problem with training, not the bit. (I am not attacking you, or saying that you don't know how to train, this is what I would say to anyone with your problem.)

first off what are you doing to try to make him to turn and how is the horse reacting.

Use your legs, seat, head, and hands. Best thing and it works every single time on all the stubborn horses I've ridden. If they don't listen, keep doing it until they do.
