Every time my mare decides that she is not interested in doing what I ask she decides to throw her head up to escape the eggbutt snaffle. I do not want to use a tie down. I have tried martingales, draw reins, and side pulls. I don't want a piece of equipment to bandaid the issue I want to fix the issue. She was is a shanked bit but my youngest has to heavy of a hand to use it so I went back to the snaffle to try to be nice to her. She is 15 ish. I would like to know what I can work on. With her. We ride western. I have tried to make it uncomfortable for her to do it by pulling her head to my foot and making her work in a tight circle. I at a complete loss now I don't want to have to go to a tougher bit to keep her head down. Open for any suggestions.
