Since he’s offering to chew, this may perhaps be a good opportunity to pop the bit in his mouth (off the bridle of course and while you’re holding it, for a short time (the number of seconds or minutes dependent on his reaction) to encourage it while he’s under saddle. Per the comments above, the shorter crossties (or not using crossties at all) with quick release as well as playing music for him are all good suggestions.
