ACE is really common up here as a sedative (tons of vets use it), not on reiners, but as a general use it's used very often. What are the negative side effects are you talking about? All I've read is it a generally very safe to use and side effects are uncommon. Obviously I would never want to ride a horse on it, but I've never heard or seen it have really any negative side effects.
Only thing I've found online about it the risks are for male horses and risk of paraphimosis.
There's another sedative we use up here too, I think it starts with an R or something, I think ahha.
