As we are at last hopefully able to return very soon to our routines and competitions we revisit an article from Sarah Hamlyn MSc, (BSc Hons), Equine Nutritionist, BE Regional Co-ordinator & Event Rider - " When horses are travelling and competing in events, they quite often go for long periods without forage which can increase acid build up in the stomach. Also competition days can be long and stressful - another factor that can cause extra stomach acid production. This excess acid can splash over the wall of the stomach, especially when jumping and galloping during the cross country phase, potentially leading to gastric ulcers developing. Equine 74 Gastric will act as a long lasting buffer to soak up excess acid, reducing the risk of acid splashes. It should also help the horses to feel more comfortable and able to perform to the best of their ability"
