Maybe it's because we hear statistics all the time that it's possible to read that on average 1 in 3 horses suffers from gastric ulcers and still not realize the “1” could be our horse!
Just curious how many horses do you have?
How many horses are at the barn where you keep your horse?

Reducing The Risk of Digestive Concerns
To be honest equine gastric ulcers is just one concern of many that your horse could be experiencing when it comes to their digestion. By raising your awareness, I in no way mean to increase your fear or worry… because that will not serve you or your horse in any way!
But it is often in these times of discomfort and tension that we are open to changing our patterns and taking action to achieve a new and better result…
That is the outcome I desire for you and your horse 🙂
Now that you know that your horse's digestive health could be at risk, here are some tips to drastically reduce the concern!
- Maintain consistent annual or biannual dental exams
- Reduce the fasting periods your horse experiences
- Check your supplement ingredients for synthetics, fillers, and chemicals that cause inflammation and intestinal irritation
- Choose a natural digestive health supplement and be sure to feed or focus on your horse's digestion at least every 3 months
