Tack specifications are usually included in the show book. Alternatively, you can always ask the show admin. I'd guess that English Pleasure would be pretty lenient on bit choices (keeping in mind your horse is supposed to be a "pleasure" to ride...). A simple snaffle would probably do.

What are you currently using?
