olympic equestrian events – shouldn’t the horse get the medal?

in addition to the workers who’ve died building the olympics, there’s a fair chance some of the horses competing in the equestrian events will die of heat exhaustion

so if there’s anyone who doesn’t deserve their medals surely it is prince philip & his ilk flogging horses.

am i ignorant of horse physiology, how will the heat effect them?
am i ignorant of horse psychology, do they enjoy it?
am i ignorant of horse citizenship, do our horses have to prove they are british?
or and while i’m about it
am i ignorant of horse medicine, are they drug tested, or can they get pumped up or even munted in the run up to the jumping?
