Hey bloggers,

Hope everyone is starting to get into the Christmas spirit, especially now with the Santa Claus Parade taking way in downtown Toronto. This week's blog is going to be featuring recipes for spoiling your horses with homemade treats this holiday season. Baking is one of the most fun traditional aspects of getting into the Christmas spirit, so why not bake some treats for your equine buddies. Some common ingredients you will need are: oats, molasses, flour, any type of horse treats such as apples/carrots/mints, salt, and sugar. Some recipes add flax seed and performance grains so your horse can enjoy a tasty treat as well as benefit from the treats in their performance. While researching homemade horse treats online I came across an important piece of information that is vital for when you decide to make your own horse treats. That special note is that horses should not be fed peanuts because horses cannot digest peanuts and subsequently will clog their intestines if ingested. Some vets say peanut butter will not hurt horses but use your judgement wisely when baking for your furry friends, and if you have any questions about any types of food check with your vet just incase. 

Some popular and delicious horse treats are posted below. It includes the ingredients and recipe.

1) Tasty Pony Boppers


1¼c Rolled Oats

First, Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients together in medium to large bowl. Then, mix molasses and soaked grain together in a small bowl, then mix into large bowl. After that, ball up into small, flattened patties and place on a cookie sheet. Bake until well baked or a little bit burnt so they are really crunchy after they cool! Bon Appetite! Your horse WILL go bonkers over these delicious little crunchy bites of heaven...And a very healthy treat at that! OR…you can not add the Trifecta© and you can also add any special goodies that your horse enjoys!

Preheat oven for 350 degrees F. First, mix sugar, flour, and crushed/grated goods. Then add liquid goods. Stir until well blended. The mix should be sticky, but not too runny. If it is too runny, add flour, if it is to thick, add a little more mollasses and oil. Cook for 10-15 min. Apply more time if it's neccessary. they should be crunchy when you are done, let cool in fridge. My horse Whynnie loves em' after she gets a good workout on the jump course!
3) Molasses Cookies Horse Treats 
Your horse will love the sweet crunchiness of these cookies. They keep well in an air-tight container. Never feed too many treats too often. 
  • 1 ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup bran
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 1 cup grated carrot or apple


  • Preheat oven to 375F
  • Oil two cookie sheets
Put aside a small bowl of white sugar and a drinking glass with a flat bottom.

In a large bowl mix all the ingredients thoroughly. The mixture shouldn’t be too wet, and should stick together.


Add more flour to make the mixture firmer and hold together if necessary. Drop by teaspoonfuls, about 1 ½ inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Grease the bottom of the glass, dip it in the sugar, and stamp the cookies to flatten them slightly. Bake for about 10 minutes. This makes about 25 cookies, depending on the size. Store in an air-tight container or bag.

These horse treats are simple and fun to make. As you bake more horse treats you start to personalize your treats. With these recipes your horses will be happy as ever :)
