I tried Aloe Vera juice with Deedee but she did not improve on it unfortunately. I had high hopes! I’ve ordered the Equine 74 Gastric and will update if anyone is interested x

Have a look at the research on Nexium. Costs about £30 for a months course and is at least as effective as standard ulcer treatment. Its an OTC drug for humans. Some vets will sanction its use on horses now.

Just going to list her symptoms on day zero - then update weekly to see if anything changes.
- disliked being groomed - acts like she is itchy or sore
- dull coat
- puts ears back at sight of tack
- opens mouth, mouths bars of stable when tacked up
- girthy
- chomps the bit - not when ridden but when just stood waiting with bridle on.

She has always hated being groomed but the rest is new and I am sure linked to pain and box rest.

I feel a bit bad riding her when she is uncomfortable but vet was clear that she needs work to strengthen the pelvis and increase the range of movement. And that her pelvis and her gut should improve at the same time as each other. So I am following that advice.

She is actually really well behaved under saddle and she gets better and better as the session goes on. Swings more, softens and relaxes more. She felt lovely in our lesson today.

I would definitely give Amanda at Equine74 a ring, she's lovely and will be able to help you.
It has been very popular with a couple of people on our yard.

Update 1 after a week:

- Skin seems less sensitive
- Coat soft and shiny
- still puts ears back at sight of tack
- still opens mouth, when tacked up but less mouthing of the bars
- slightly less girthy
- more relaxed under saddle, Softer and swinging more./
- Still chomps bit.

So I think she is more comfortable but is still feeling something. I am impressed so far! It's not the increased turn out either - she has been snow/iced in since Saturday.
