A beloved horse can be as much a part of the family as a cat or dog, so why shouldn’t they get a treat from time to time?

This simple apple and oat bake requires very little attention when cooking, but makes a delicious horse treat for special occasions like birthdays or just to tell them thanks for a great ride.

Minimum 6 apples
1/2 cup Rolled oats
1 tablespoon Golden Syrup

Apple Oat Bake Ingredients
Three simple ingredients that should be in any pantry

Preheat your oven to 180ºC (fan-forced)
Boil one pot of water and keep it on heat
Chop up your apples into small chunks (no bigger than a fifty cent piece)
Place apples in boiling water and stir every couple of minutes for thirty minutes or until apples have become golden and soft

One of the great things about this recipe is that not only is it very forgiving if cooking isn’t your forte, it’s also incredibly versatile. Do you have a horse that has a sweet tooth for pears? Stew some pears with the apples. You can also swap out the golden syrup for that old horsey favourite of molasses. It’s very easy to tailor this recipe to suit your horse’s preferences.

The best part about these treats is that they are 100% edible and delicious for people too. Is there a better way to spend a summer afternoon than sharing some goodies with your equine buddy? Ending a long ride with a picnic is a fantastic way to spend some quality downtime with your pony.
