Canadian Rules and Reg For bits/hackamores

Im planning on showing(show jumping) this summer and im riding my horse in a german hackamore. it has i think 4-6 inch shanks.

I need to find out if there is a rule for certain levels or just depends on the location.

I'm not completely sure but I don't think there should be any problems. I've seen a lot of Spruce Meadow and high class Show Jumpers using hackamores on their horses. I don't know how long the shanks on their hackamores are but I doubt yours will be a problem.
