Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS) and gastric discomfort affect an estimated 50 to 90% of all performance horses. This man-made condition is a product of stress, reduced forage intake, intermittent feeding, confinement, and/or high starch diets. But, through dietary modifications, owners can help improve the gastric environment thereby decreasing the risk of ulcers in their horses.
