i need opinions!!!!!!!!
as i said in other forums i got a new horse and he is a temperment 7 and very hyper. ok so, iv'e been going out to see clippy and the prievious owner gave me a saddle seat bridle and a bit to go with it and that does not work out for him, he acts up even more. so, iv'e been useing a low port snaffle bit and im not sure if its the bit or just him, but when i am just walking or trotting he will spin so fast in the other direction and it almost threw me off. so would i have to use a high port or something??? and i need ya'lls opinions on what bit i should use.

Have you gotten his teeth checked?
I'd go back to a simple snaffle, myself

anyone else have opinions?/?//?//?
It sounds like a training issue, not necissarily a bit issue. Go back to ground work and build up your communication for a couple weeks and then start basics in the saddle with a basic snaffle (regular, french-link, or arched mullen mouth) and work from there.

I agree, it doesn't really sound like a bitting problem, but rather it sounds like he's trying to spin around and go back to the barn. Thus a training issue. He probably is doing it as soon as you relax and your mind wanders off him for a moment. They know these things. lol So, try to pay attention to your riding at all times but if he spins then keep him going until he is facing the way you were originally heading. That always worked better for me than trying to stop them and turn them back.
