I'm fairly sure the roller ones are legal.. They're legal in Canada and I'm fairly sure the FEI has legalized them as well. Not like, copper rollers but these ones:


It's weird that Dr. Bristols are legal in the US, they're illegal in Canada.

Also fairly sure that bit guards are illegal.

Bit guards are most definitely illegal. I researched that in 2008 when I was doing an event with a horse that always wore bit guards in training.

Yup, you're right, bit guards are not allowed. My bad .

From the rule book:

Quote:
All bits (in A and B below) must be smooth and with a solid surface. Twisted, wire and roller bits are prohibited. A bushing or coupling is permitted as the center link in a double jointed snaffle, however, the surface of the center piece must be solid with no moveable parts. The mouthpiece of a snaffle may be shaped in a slight curve, but ported snaffles are prohibited.
And this is under the picture I posted, in the rule book.
Quote:
Any of the above may be made with a rubber, plastic or leather covering, but the bit may not be modified by adding latex or other material. Bits with mouthpieces made of synthetic material are permitted, provided that the contours of the bit conform to the contours of one of the bits pictured above. Flexible rubber or synthetic mouthpieces are permitted.
Tack starts on page 18.
