yes, a horse that is ridden by all kinds of people, can become heavy.leaning on a bit, but even if a horse is fresh, ;leaning, it is not the same as tossing head ect
This following sentence shows me a horse that is not just heavy but resistant to a bit
'if you ride her constantly on the bit, she will get ****ed and just throw her head around.
A horse has to accept you holding him, if you chose to do so, staying soft and giving in poll, face, mouth and body, versus resisting contact, throwing head, being '****y'
I don't think changing bits is going to fix head throwing and being ****y with contact.
I would forget about jumping her for now, and get her softer in her body , using legs effectively, along with reins
