The case involved a well-known German jump rider whose horse tested positive for Capsaicin during the riding competitions of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Hong-Kong. Capsaicin is an irritant, which produces a burning sensation on any tissue and it is basically the active component of chilli peppers. The rider was suspended on August 22, 2008 and he explained that the horse had been suffering from chronical back pains for a while, thus justifying the use of an ointment containing Capsaicin.
