If you are implying that paprika will compromise a horse's health Mls, that is incorrect. A horse will be no more or less happy and healthy if you feed them paprika.

What about a UV flysheet in the summer? I never used them because it seemed counter-intuitive to cover up a horse when it's hot, but I got my gelding a Weatherbeeta one and not only did it keep the buggies off him, it kept him dark and cooler than he would be without it. I boarded at a barn that had very bad flies.

Paprika contains Capsaicin which is a swabbable substance for competition so has to be withdrawn prior to competition.

I know that. My point is that paprika does not affect the horse's health or happiness. If you read my post a little earlier in this thread, you'll see my explanation of the capsaicin thing.

I can't say it enough: paprika does not harm a horse in any way shape or form. It's only purified capsaicin applied to the horse's skin that hurts them.

I like using paprika on my black based horses. Even my blue roan appy gets some. It defiantly brings out the shine in my mares

Paprika does in fact enhance the horse's coat. My friend uses it and it works.

However I would check with your local shows because Paprika is illegal in some shows.

I've never thought about using 'supplements' ( like spices) for a horse's health or coat.

Well, now that I think about it, I did read that peppermint oil can be good to help a horse's respiratory system...
