What type of bit would you all recommend? He was being ridden western, with spurs, curb bit, etc. Very aggressive! I have been riding him English with a simple snaffle. He does okay with this bit. When we are out trail riding, he gets very determined to go home, naturally. When I try to turn him away from the direction of home it becomes quite difficult. I have tried using leg aides to encourage him to turn in the direction we should be going. He can be sensitive to leg aides because he is used to being spurred! I literally can have his head turned almost back to be knee and he is still moving in the direction he wants to go in. This also becomes an issue when I try to work him in large/small circle. He bends very very hard to the outside of the circle. I think part of this is he is unbalanced.
So, I think I have said a lot without saying a lot, haha. Thank you for your patience!
