Can I use this bit to show in dressage?

I ride Rosie in a wrapped wire D-ring snaffle, and I am confused as to whether I can show dressage in it. The Dressage Canada tack guidelines say that you must show in a smooth snaffle and not twisted, but this is not a twisted bit, nor exactly smooth.

This is what I mean by wrapped wire just for anyone who doesn't know, note the wrapped part on the mouthpiece. This is *not* the bit I ride her in.

Thank you to anyone with answers.

Absolutely not. You are not even allowed to use copper rollers let alone wrapped wire.

I suggest you look up your countries equestrian federation Dressage rule book. These are generally available online, on their website, and there is a whole chapter on bitting.

Okay, thank you! I'll look at the DC bitting rules and make sure if they're allowed or not.

Nope. It must be a smooth bit. Even twisted bits aren't allowed.
Check out usdf.org. They have a detailed section on bits (assuming you're in the US)
