Lots of treats you can give your horse without using cereal, eggs, marg etc...can;t be very good for the

I use these as treats:

Bananas, pears, plums.....any fruit
Peelings from the kitchen - including things like brussel sprouts (much loved)

Dates, pitted
Almonds, Walnuts, Hazelnuts
Sunflower seeds, whole or hulled,
Dried bananas (big favourite, really big favourite!), slices or whole
Dried apricots,
Dried pears
Raisins, sultanas, currants
Soy nuts!
A handful of fennel seeds (get a big bag for £1 from any Indian grocer)

Other things we share in quiet moments, like crunchy nut and seed bars

Cairo used to love this, but Fleur was only allowed 30 second lick a day as it is very full of sugar.

1 large can of black treacle

1 kilo of dark brown sugar

1 box of quakers oaks.

Heat sugar in treacle until dissolved, then get very hot so bubbling. Leave to cool until just hot and put into an old ice cream container and mix in the oats. Leave to cool and set hard.

You can also add grated apple.

As said, only for horses that are not the type to get souped up on sugar and oats and occasional treat.

Fleur used to get grated apple and carrot mixed with chaff and then a small amount of boiled sugar water to set it and again only a tiny bit every day as sugar could send her too energetic. I normally gave it to her Christmas day and then not ride until the 27th to get it out of her system. She did so love it that it was worth it once a year.
