My 14.2 pony is currently in a full cheek fulmer snaffle. Recently what I think he's been doing is putting his tongue over the bit, and also leaning on it. Now when I try and do 20m circles in canter he (what feels like) locks the bit and makes it impossible for me to have any control over him. He has also done this once in canter when bolting around the school. It is really annoying as I have absolutely no control and does not leave room for an enjoyable riding experience as I am not in the slightest bit strong enough to even attempt to pull his head up. So am thinking of changing the bit?
