I always bring water. As for snack usually I take some sort of granola bar. I like bars because I don't have to touch them with my hands, since the water at our barn is stock water and safe for animals only so we can't really wash our hands. Also, apples are great because they can really quench your thirst and you can give the core to your horse. :)

I keep meaning to bring something with me but most times forget. Sometimes I will stop on my way out and grab a vitamin water. Lately, when we are done for the day we go over to the local fresh fruit and veggie stand, which is practically walking distance from the barn. I grab a water and a mountain dew, and sometimes a piece of fruit like a plum.

I rarely bring snacks with me.. I should really start; I have had to resort to stealing some horse cookies here and there because I got too hungry to wait to drive home.
(PS - they're the Horse Cookie brand, handmade about an hour north of here)

The ones I buy are really really good. Rolled oats, bran, and molasses. Yum.

Oh ok! For some reason I was thinking just those regular treats you get out of a bucket.

I always bring an extra water with me, but a few of us at the barn like to keep the mini fridge stocked. Sometimes I bring an extra carrot to snack on. But most of the time I like to take granola bars!! :] Love them! I've had granola bars for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the barn. Lol!

All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day. ~Author Unknown

Since I usually have a pile of kids with me I have gotten creative about making snacks healthy. I find, after riding they love hard boiled eggs, string cheese, bananas, small bottles of orange juice (not sunny D too much sugar), grapes, cheese, turkey and crackers, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I get small packs of nuts from Costco. Usually the cashews and almonds go first. The small bags of Smartfood popcorn are healthier than chips and everyone likes it. When I bring sugar snap peas it seems everyone including stray adults eat them up. Can you tell food is a favorite subject of mine, ha ha.
