Making homemade horse treats is an activity that both me and my kids enjoy. Not only is it fun to try new recipes, it’s also a great chance to experiment with our own ingredient combinations. My horses are far from picky, so whether it’s a win or a fail they always seem pleased, and luckily don’t mind eating slightly crispy (burnt) or soft (gooey) horse treats. After going through dozens of recipes we’ve come up with a list of ingredients that you can practically combine in any amount to create something your horse will find eatable. If you’re feeling adventurous and have knack for baking, give it a try!
Recommended Homemade Horse Treat Ingredients:
Whole Wheat Flour
Crushed Peppermints (or Candy Canes)
Oil (I always use Coconut Oil for the great health benefits. Read more about coconut oil for horses)
Ideally the mix should be wet enough to form into balls, but not soupy. Bake at around 350 until they’re slightly browned.
Just to be safe, here are some ingredients I would NOT use as they could be toxic in large amounts:
