Kentucky Performance Products: Low-Sugar Treats for Your Horse

Some horses can’t have treats high in sugar. Here are some alternatives.

Looking for low-sugar treats for your horse? Try these fruits, but remember, all things in moderation and introduce new treats slowly.

  • Apple peels
  • Apricot (remove the pit to prevent risk of choking)
  • Cantaloupe
  • Celery
  • Cherries (remove pits, as they are toxic)
  • Strawberries

Avoid offering candy, molasses or anything made with sweet syrup. Bananas, applesauce, apples, watermelon and carrots should be fed in moderation because they are all higher in sugar.

Fight back against vitamin E deficiencies that can cause muscle soreness and stiffness

Elevate® Maintenance Powder was developed to provide a highly bioavailable source of natural vitamin E to horses. Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, limits the damage caused by everyday oxidative stress. It maintains healthy muscle and nerve functions so horses are more likely to perform better and recover faster after training or competing.

Vitamin E requirements vary from situation to situation. Multiple research studies have shown that vitamin E is often deficient in the diets of horses that do not have access to continual grazing on fresh green grass, or those grazing on winter pasture. Performance horses with demanding workloads, growing horses and seniors can be exposed to increased levels of oxidative stress and therefore require higher levels of vitamin E in their diets. Studies reveal that horses challenged by neurological disease benefit from natural vitamin E supplementation.
