Stick with Ryle's advice here, this is a management issue but you do need to get ulcers healing as well and for that I'd go with something that has been tested and proven safe, not something that people claim to be safe by word of mouth. If there really were such "miracle cures" for horses with gastric ulcers, which is one of the leading health problems in horses, it wouldn't be super cheap. Part of the reason that effective medical treatments are expensive is because they take a lot of testing and development to make sure that they are safe for our animals. For me, I'm willing to spend the extra money to be sure I'm not causing more harm than good.

Also, Pepto is a human product. I wouldn't give it to a horse and it can be fatal in dogs and cats, just an FYI.
Just a quick note - Pepto is Bismuth sulphate, which can be given to horses as I use it frequently in my practice. However, it takes quite a bit. When I'm treating a colitis, ect, I am usually tubing the horse with about a 1/2 gallon a couple times a day.

^^My previous bosses also use to give pepto when the lions and tigers they worked with had gastric upset (they worked at a zoo type deal)

I've also given my dog who gets car sick the pepto bismol tabs before taking her anyplace in my car. Works every time and I've never seen any side effects from it.
