First of all, they shouldn't have the right to ride horses under medication.
In America, they can use 2 products that are forbidden in Europe (Lasix and Bute). We can imagine that there's a link with the accidents but it's not proven. I won and rode there, but I'm not in America everyday so I don't know if these products help the horses or just make them go faster.
