Nope! Can compete GP in a snaffle (at least under Equestrian Australia and British Dressage rules, don't know about USDF).

Bridle
At Preliminary and Novice levels an ordinary snaffle bridle must be worn, at Elementary to Grand Prix level dressage competitions under national rules a snaffle or double bridle may be worn, whilst at Prix St Georges and Grand Prix dressage levels under FEI rules a double bridle must be worn.
Any bridle must have a noseband and this can be a cavesson, drop or flash noseband with a snaffle bridle. Double bridles must have a cavesson noesband. Grackle nosebands are only permitted for eventing.

Yeah, that's the FEI, so under international rules. Under national rules (at least in some countries) a snaffle bridle is allowed for competing at all levels.

Optional yes. But at PSG and GP its mandatory. I just checked the Australian Dressage rules and a double is mandatory at Advance and FEI. On page 23

Hmm I haven't checked our rules for a while. Thanks! But it is only optional at PSG and GP level at national events in the US and UK.

ETA: might need to start campaigning to change our rules, I don't particularly object to double bridles in good hands but a choice should surely be offered here as well - not like a horse gets an advantage with a snaffle bridle!

Yea I don't get why it has to be mandatory. Its optional in dressage for the top levels of eventing. I don't mind a double bridle. I don't find much difference riding in it compared to a snaffle on a well trained horse. At the end of the day its your seat that does the work, not your hands.
