    This.

    Also a noseband (even if adjusted loosely) will prevent you from pulling the bit through his mouth. I'm sure you are well beyond using only the bit to steer the horse, but this can happen...

    I second the pro choice knee brace. The fancier ones don't seem to work with saddles.

    If you ride English I reccomend plain fillis irons for a while and avoid the jointed ones.

    I believe that the old time-y trainers would call this phenomenon "comin untrained." i.e. "That paint sure looks like he's (be)come untrained." It is common.
