As someone mentioned, it IS outlawed in the Arabian (USEF) show rules:


5. Ginger, Capsaicin, and Other Irritants.
a. No horse may compete in a class in the Arabian or Half Arabian/Anglo Arabian
Division with a tail carriage that has been altered in any manner or by any means,
including by application to its anus, vulva, rectal area or vaginal area of a chemical or
other irritant of any kind. Violations of this Article are considered serious infractions,
because such alterations constitute misrepresentations of the breed type.
b. No horse may compete in a class in the Arabian or Half Arabian/Anglo Arabian
Division with any chemical or other irritant of any kind present on its anus, vulva, rectal
area or vaginal area, regardless of the origin of the irritant and whether it was applied or
its presence resulted from dietary, environmental or unknown origins, and whether the
horse’s tail carriage was affected by its presence.
c. The trainer (see GR146 and GR404), owners, and their agents, of a horse entered
to compete in a class in the Arabian and Half Arabian/Anglo Arabian Division are insurers
of the horse’s condition and compliance with this Rule, and accordingly they are
responsible and accountable for safeguarding the horse and controlling its diet and environment
prior to, during and following the class, and at the time of the sampling provided
for below, so as to prevent exposure to a chemical or other irritant of any kind, regardless
of its origin, whether exposure was intentional, and whether the horse’s tail carriage
was affected by its presence. These individuals/entities are subject to charges of rule
violation should the sampling and testing provided for below be positive for the presence
