Our boys just love treats! We do many tricks with these guys so we always like to reward them for going the extra mile. We do not treat our boys by hand with the kids we serve as this can lead to bad behavior from the horse. They can get a little nippy or aggressive so we will treat them by placing the treat in a bucket. When I am asking the horse to bow, one of the tricks, I will give it to the horse versus the child. I would suggest implementing some good behavior training for yourself as well. There is nothing more annoying than a pushy horse!
Hope you find the recipe enjoyable to know you are giving your horse the best. Not only from your kitchen but from the heart as well.

Because there are natural ingredients in these treats, you must keep in a dry cool place and use within a couple of weeks. I am SURE your horses won’t mind! It is a treat that is healthy and safe! You gotta love that feeling!
Store these treats in a glass mason jar or a sealed bag. I don’t like to use glass around the ranch, but it does help to keep the treats much fresher.
