Horses can drink almost anything i've even heard that people in Switzerland or England give their horses sips of beer

If it is to tempt a fussy horse to drink water, then fine... Whatever works.

If it is to replenish electrolytes and minerals after exercise, I would advise not to. Horses electrolyte needs are different to a humans and while Gatorade will work for us, it won't necessarily give your horse the correct levels it needs. Better to go and get a horse electrolyte suppliment.
