A lack of control is a rideability issue, not a tack issue.

However, I had the same issue with my horse in the beginning and while changing tack (Tried various different stronger snaffles with a grackle) did help what it really came down to was our flatwork and him respecting my aids.

Some things that helped were doing tons of transitions. If you feel like your pony isn’t listening you can stop them into a wall.
