Slide Mouthpiece

Good English bit for a horse who chews on it?

My 4yo has mostly done western, and as of a month ago in a shanked bit. We've been doing a little english though, and during shows, especially while standing lined up, he chews on the bit and sometimes turns his head sideways. He NEVER pulls it out of my hands, but even when i bump him really hard he goes back to chewing and looking like an idiot seconds later. >.< He's currently ridden english in a copper mouth oval mouth, loose ring.

I thought about a happy mouth, but I want a bit to encourage him NOT to chew. It's really annoying and really destroys our hunter look :( lol thanks!

My Connemara does this when you stand still (no matter if you give him his head or not). He's 18 and always done it - doesn't matter whether he's in a loose ring French link or his double bridle (curb with sliding mouthpiece and loose ring bradoon)
It's a GOOD THING - shows they are not holding the bit in the mouth and are therefore not tense through the jaw!

If you want to minimise the chewing put an eggbutt in - the copper on your current bit may well be encouraging him.
Don't go for a bit with rollers or a moving mouthpiece. However, you could end up with a horse tense through the jaw or resisting the bit as he can't fiddle with it and make himself comfortable and you could end up with a horse throwing his head and taking the reins out of your hands.
A happy mouth is for horses with a sensitive mouth or a horse that dislikes cold metal - it will not help you.

If you sit on him and have really tight, short reins when standing in the line up you could be making him uncomfortable as he can't relax - slacken your reins a bit but don't forget to shorten them up before you move out of the line up.
