"Things to check first- if the bit is sitting high enough in the mouth. If the bit sits too low, it will sit on a thinner, more sensitive part of the tongue or hit the canine teeth repeatedly. Do not look at the wrinkles, look inside the mouth. Ideally the bit should rest halfway between the canines and the molars. Moving the bit a little higher temporarily can help re train the mouth as it makes it harder for the horse to play with.
Also check the correct size- if the bit is too big, again it will droop in the mouth and sit too low. If the bit is too thick, he will be unable to comfortably close his mouth at all."
