Sweet feed isn't good for them anyway. Try alfalfa pellets or soaked alfalfa cubes. If he'll eat that, then just add a vitamin/mineral supplement and a little fat (like flax meal or Empower) and he'll be getting all of the nutrition he needs without all the junk that he doesn't. If he's on free choice hay, he should only need 1-4 lbs of alfalfa and 2-6 oz of fat to keep up his weight, even in moderate to heavy riding/training.
I agree, though, ask your vet. You want to rule out any injury related issues or possible mouth or stomach ulcers.
