Theee wire 220 to 110

I have a three wire 220 running up a pole for a yard light and need to tap 110 to run an electric gate. Can I break the two hot leads going to the light and drop a transformer in an enclosure to step down to 110. And also taking the Hot leads back up to the light?

Yes you could add a small transformer for the gate. I'd also recommend checking with the gate company to see if they offer a 240V version -- many of them are capable of running on different voltages.
