Ulcers are associated with stress - and we can put our horses through stress without even realizing it - I wonder how many foals get ulcers when they get weaned because that is a really stressful time for them.
Feeding grain and nothing else might cause ulcers because the horse would be standing without food for long periods of time but fed as a supplemental part of its diet with grazing or hay shouldn't be a problem at all
I have found that a supplement called U-Gard works really well and I add to my horses feeds if I think they are for any reason going through a stress period or if they have to be on pain meds that are likely to cause stomach irritation
What makes you think your horse has ulcers?
