Just like you love everything pumpkin (spice) in the fall, most horses will love some cut up pieces of pumpkin. It’s also packed with vitamins and minerals. (Avoid feeding other gourds and squashes, as they may be toxic to your loved one).

I know, gross right? Most humans either love or hate beets; there’s really no in between. But your horse can benefit from this fiber-filled snack that often comes in a pulp or dried pellet form for horses.
Note: Remember that moderation is key. Keep your horse’s diet balanced and only feed them treats on occasion to avoid any unhealthy eating habits. Also remember to cut these tasty treats into pieces so they are easier for your horse to chew and swallow.
Until next time #RIDEnation!
