feeding grain during rides.

I'm probably way off base here, but I thought one of the reason you
don't feed grains during rides was because the horses blood etc is used
toward maintaining the exercise and away from digesting the grain. I
thought from previous posts the grain could just sit there get sour in
the stomack, causing pains or colic. AND, that hay was used to help
keep the gut moving and absorb moisture.

Or am I totally wrong?
