I would respectfully have to disagree with you Ryle on causing ulcers. That is unless you can present some scientific data relating to that. I'm always open for more information.
Devils claw is not recommended for humans or horse's that have gastric problems as it may increase stomach acids, but given to a healthy human or horse it's is well tolerated in the proper dosages.
Products like Lakota and others contain Devils Claw and there have been many success stories with these products.
I wouldn't rule it out 100%.
Ruling this out is like ruling out long term use of Bute in small doses. There are lots of horse that are kept pasture sound and live to a ripe old age on small doses of bute 2-3 times per week.
If you have a TB, which are very susceptible to ulcers or know you horse has digestive problems then consult your vet first.
