First determine WHY you want to get your horse a treat. Is it to alleviate boredom if he's stalled for long periods of time? You'll want something that takes a LONG time to devour. A stall toy would be better.
Is it because everyone else has one? Does it make YOU feel better to treat your horse? You probably don't need one and your horse won't care.
You can tell what's inside the treat by reading the ingredients. You're smart to care about sugar content.
When I give my horse a treat, it's to make me feel better. Sure they love it, but they don't need it ;)
Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.
