I am English, and we use straw as bedding there but I would not want my horse to eat it, and I always made sure that they had enough good quality hay to see them through the night.
The place I just moved my gelding from used shredded newspaper as bedding. On the nights I was there he would not eat the paper as he has enough hay that I would give him. On the nights I was not there, I think he ate the paper as there was about half the amount that I would see them load a stall with.
