It’s also very common for trainers to sedate horses coming back to work after an injury. I see it in the hunter/jumper world all the time. Horse has been on stall rest for a long time and gets sedation for turnout and riding until it is no longer explosive. A sad stand in for proper care and training. Heart breaking to see these big athletes kept in tiny stalls all day and then when returning to work, they are drugged to stay compliant.
