Extremely sensitive mare

Hello! I have a thoroughbred mare who has a very sensitive mouth in general but her tongue seems to be the most sensitive. I currently ride her in a Mullen mouth which she seems to like but I don’t like her response to half halts. She will sometimes lift her head up and hollow her back and will also tilt her head to the side while constantly chewing and opening her mouth. She will also dip her head too low. I don’t use any kind of restrictive nose and on her...I don’t agree with them. I have done quite a bit of research on your products and I’m wondering if the DC Morgan Dressage Happy Tongue Swivel would help her. I’ve also ridden her in a Myler low port snaffle which she is “ok” in but still not happy. She can actually feel heavy in both bits that I’ve tried, at times bracing against me and other times flipping her head up. Please let me know what you think! Also, how should I measure for the dressage happy tongue swivel bit? Thank you!
