Bit advice for a sensitive mare

I have a mare that i am struggling to find a bit she is comfortable in. When she is working and stressed, she raises her head like a giraffe. She will tilt her head, jog on the spot with her head high then will try and snatch the reins. I have tried a bomber happy tongue, a NS turtle top (she hated that!), and a bomber eptical. She was previously ridden in a NS verbidend and a universal for jumping. My daughter sat on her the other day and picked up the reins and her head went high straight away with teh slightest of contacts. She is sensitive however when stressed becomes strong and fights. Any advice is welcome! she is a connemara. She also chomps on the bit quite extensively. I appreciate some of this will be schooling however i feel i haven't found a bit that she will accept yet.
