Know any good horse treats? Healthy ones?


I was just wondering if any of you know any good horse treats I could make. Ones with ingredients that could be found in a grocery store, so nothing like sweet feed or grain etc. More things like fruit and veggies and honey. I would really like sme healthy ones but if it isn't, it's ok. If you could also include any sights you like that have good horse treats?

I don't generally give any treats to horses. Carrots (especially the tops!) are good though. I give my sister's horse mints after I ride because he's old and tolerant of me (I haven't ridden in 5 years and am very floppy.)

I just buy a sack of cubed feed, and use them as treats, it's cheap and healthy

These won't be in your grocery, but they are a really nice treat. Tribute Equine Nutrition just came out with them, they are called "Trib's Treats" and are in a cube form and come in 3 flavors, including Banana!!! (which has turned out to be all of our horses' favorite!) Here's a link to them on their website.

I buy mini shredded wheat cereal for mine. No sugar, and they love it. Vet actually recommended it to me. Cheap too.

Carrots are probably the #1 thing that comes to mind. However, our horses eat most garden produce. They tend to snatch things out of the chicken's bucket when I set it down to open the door to the henhouse, so I have learned to toss a few squash, cucumber, turnips, or whatever out to the horses on my way to the henhouse, or I'll likely get mobbed.

Their favorite summer treat is watermelon rind. They don't care how well it's cleaned, either. The grandkids will often leave a lot of the "good part" on the rind because they are in a hurry to get another piece before it's all gone. It's hilarious watching the horses eat the rinds, with all that juice running out of their mouths and the look of bliss on their faces! (You have to be careful, though - too much of a good thing can lead to colic.)
