Are treat good for horses?

Hi Everyone,

i'm a beginner in all this Horse world and I have 2 nice calm horse for trail (no competition), just basically family horse... I want to teach them some things and I noticed that when I TREAT them with carrots, they do things much faster then when I don't... I was wondering, is this a BAD way to start?

I do use carrots too. :) Not when riding but for some ground work and used to give a lot when was teaching basic care things (brushing, hoofs, etc.). I'v seen trick trainers use carrots all the time to make horses do what they want.

To me SOMETIMES it can be a bad thing. The horse could get narky and want a treat when it has done right but you hav none on you, or you refuse to give ur horse one.
Just be carefull on how often you give ur horse a treat for doin something good remeber it also has to do what you ask out of respect not just treats all the time
