He's maybe been rode 10 times in the past 3 years. He's been worked with by trainers when we first got him. He's just a stubborn old man who is lazy. I know that he was supposedly a barrel an parade horse effort we got him. He is trained as good as he's going to get. I was just looking for a suggestion for a god bit for him. Also I meant he seems to do better plow rein than neck reining.
I second the suggestion of getting a bit which is going to better communicate what you want, as your current tom thumb is not working by your own admission. And I would certainly expect a horse who has only been ridden 10 times in the past 3 years to need a tune-up. If he is not wanting to stop in the current bit, I don't understand why you would call him lazy.
