Please try to understand that everybody is only trying to look out for your safety and the safety of your horse. He seems like a very nice and very willing horse. He just seems very leery of your hands, and he seems to act the way he does because he doesn't want to have his mouth pulled off with that harsh bit.
Everyone is only trying to offer suggestions. If a horse is not brought up properly and ridden properly, it is never going to advance to become anything but a backyard pet, something fun to have. A backyard pet that is one day going to get completely sick of everything and hurt someone. In this scenario, that would be you. If you want to take riding seriously, please by all means do. But that means getting a Trainer to help you. I think you have the foundation of good basics, and I think you two could be a very good pair. But there is a lot of work that needs to be done. You have braced against your horse, as your legs have swung forward and no longer are on his sides underneath of you. They are pushed forward and your using your arms/hands to brace against your horse. Resulting in the yanking of the bit.
To the untrained eye it could seem like he's 'just hot', but trust me, to someone who has been around horses (As a lot of these people have, including myself) we can see when a horse is uncomfortable.
I have followed your threads, and really hope you do decide to get help, finally. And please trade in that bit for a snaffle, your horse will thank you.
We are only trying to look out for you.
