success after the water at rolex (myphotocred)

I’ve seen this on many cross country horses, what is the white-paint-like stuff? I think it’s fly repellent but I’m not sure, any help?

I’ve never done xc before so I might be wrong but I’m pretty sure it’s like grease or something so it’s easier for the horse to get over the jump if they don’t get high enough, since the jumps on a xc course are fixed! is this right, eventers?

Its grease for sliding over jumps. Im pretty sure it also keep the friction down during falls and stops splinters and such
