are these okay for english riding

The bit is what I think to be a Dr.Bristol or french link loose ring with a roller

I think it would be legal as it looks like this one except this one is a d ring


And the head stall. We would probably replace the chain chin strap with a leather one or just take it off

That isn't a dr. Bristol. It's a loose ring with a copper roller like you said. What are you going to be using it for if you are wondering about its legality? That is also a western headstall, english doesn't use a chinstrap on snaffles and I've never seen one with chicago screws.

You'll be okay then. It doesn't matter what bit you use just for pleasure riding as there aren't any rules to follow.

Looks like an English headstall to me, it doesn't take a genius to put a curb strap on a bit.

I'm aware, but I've never even heard of an english headstall with chicago screws and the crown area is more western as well since it isn't made to have an attached noseband. I was just pointing it out in case the OP was planning on showing. :)

I've never seen an English bridle that looks like that, nor have Chicago screws. I'd bet my bottom dollar that's a western headstall.

You will need to check the rule book of whatever discipline association you plan on showing with and see if that bit is legal. That headstall isn't appropriate for showing; you will need a proper bridle with a discipline-appropriate cavesson.
If you let me know what discipline/association I may be able to hunt around for some rule books online.

It looks Western to me too.

Check with the groups hosting the shows. They will have a rulebook that explains what tack is allowed.
