"Horses help people heal from the inside"
When I was first contacted by Hearts For Horses they asked me if I wanted to do a giveaway with them, my immediate response was yes! As an older sibling to a dyslexic brother, an avid animal lover, a supporter of horse rescue, a supporter of healthy equine diets, and a treat giving horse owner.... it was a perfect match. However, I was a little worried my picky four legged partners might think I had lost marbles trying to feed them something new.
"We Pledge Donations of Profits. Every sale of our Treats donates profits to the global cause of horse rescue and the support of Dyslexia"
I received three different flavors of horse treats in my goodies box, including Banana, Peppermint, and Molasses. But they also sent my pup Roque a little surprise too! (His review is included at the end for those of you with canines at home.) The ingredients for all three I'll list here, but I also hear talk of a sugar free horse treat in the works.. I'm personally very excited for this option! I have a few easy keepers that need to watch their girlish figures. ;)
So after thoroughly checking out the ingredients list I decided to let the horses have a try and see what they thought.
At first they were a little skeptical, which I expected. The typical mouth chomping and acting like their human just shoved dirt in their mouth ensued, but very quickly their taste buds kicked in and I found myself with a horse absolutely craving more.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were particularly fond of the Banana flavored treat. I had expected them to favor the molasses treat, but no.. they wanted the sticky peppermint and the yummy smelling banana. And by yummy smelling, I'm referring to my own nose! I really wanted to try some for myself (and looking at the ingredients list I kind of wish I would have) they just smelled so heavenly.
Tiger was by far the biggest fan while River was by far the least interested, but she has never been a fan of molasses. If it has molasses, she will not eat it, so that didn't really surprise me. All the other horses loved them too though! My bet is that unless you have a really weird filly like River, your horse is going to love these.
I plan on reserving them for my high value treat during training sessions. They easily break into smaller pieces without crumbling apart, making for ideal training size bites.
If you're a dog owner Hearts For Horses also has another product for canines! I got a little video of his first treat too. It's safe to say he really enjoyed them, and the ingredients list is just as great on the dog treats too!
