Horses do a lot for their owners, whether it be on the ground or under saddle. Horses love receiving attention and praise from their owners and riders, and one of the best ways to show them your affection is to reward them with treats. If you’re looking to show your horse some love, here are few perfect treat ideas.
Carrots are a great treat to give your horse, as they are both delicious and inexpensive. These treats are very healthy for your horse as well. Horses’ favorite carrots are those with the long green stems.
Another treat that you can get from your local grocery store is apples. These treats are slightly higher in sugar than carrots, but are equally - if not more - delicious! Horses love eating apples and making “applesauce” as they chew them.
