none of these horses are wearing rump rugs. From the gear the riders are wearing, rump rugs should have been standard equipment. But is this not allowed in FEI?

where it was well below zero this morning

Rump rugs are most certainly "allowed" at FEI events. Where'd you get that?? - But as to the absence of coolers etc. - When I rode on Monday, it was most useful to cool the horse with evaporation. (and then with my hairy Jose, stand in the sun to keep a good temp through the hold.

Most (if not all) of the 100 milers put blankets on during the 2st two checks, and then lighter sheets on during the day. Riding with a rump rug in a competitive 100 beyond the the point that you've started work isn't that common as there is need for cooling at work.
