I give my horses treats... althou not while your on there back. I only give them out, one when they get caught, and one when they get let go... just as a please and thank you. That's if I don't eat them all myself (licerish) hehe... and my daughers wonder why the packet goes down so fast... they blame each other hehehe

All what my horse gets as a treat is carrots. It's not every day, only special days (like when I haven't seen her in a while)

When I first got her tho, everyday I had a bag of carrots. It was kind of like an ice breaker. I think that really helped us bond so quickly, because she saw me as someone that had yummy stuff, so she wanted to do good things and be by me.

I have no idea what kind of treat i'm giving her on her birthday tho. Any Ideas?

I saw something awhile back about a horse pizza. It was basicly just fruit and veggies but really cute. Same article had a watermelon bowl full of fruit and veggies for a horse.

Well when I was younger, I use to make a cake lol... I use to line the bottom of the bucket with bread, then I would fill it will graded carrot, apples, just about any vege and fruit lol. And then again put bread on top, and I usta put molasses as the "icing" lol.... they usta LOVE it!! And I had fun making it! Hehe

That sounds like a great idea! But, she can't have molasses :( I do like the cake idea tho.

I give my horses carrots after a good ride. They know that if they did something good they get a treat for it when there done. If they act up, then no treats and they realize not to do it again.
