"Treats" don't have to be tons of sugar, sweet feed, commercial treats, etc -- a handful of grass from the other side of the fence is a huge treat for our horses - in fact, they come to the gate any time they are called for nothing more than that. A piece of a grass hay cube (available at most feed stores) or handful of grass hay pellets, a small piece of carrot/apple, etc can be a treat as well. You can also look at "treats" as being more than just food -- a good scratch in his favorite spot, a few minutes of extra attention, etc can be a treat to your horse too. It is just about building that positive association.
