Bake a batch of these to give your horse a special trick training treat. Most horses love, love, love these treats!
We use simple treats for general daily trick training but when our horses do something really well we give them one or two of these. It really inspires them! 🙂
- 1 cup quick oats
- 1 cup oat bran
- 1/2 cup flour
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 1 cup molasses
Preheat oven to 350 ºF (180 ºC).
Grease a square baking tray (about 9 inches x 9 inches).
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.
Mixture should be sticky but not wet. If wet, add more flour. If the mixture is too dry, add more molasses.
Spread mixture evenly in the tray.
Bake for 20 – 30 minutes. Cook a bit longer if you want a drier / crunchy treat.
Remove from oven and allow the mixture to cool for 5 to 10 minutes.
Cut it into small squares.
Put the squares in an airtight container for storage.
UPDATE: In the middle of a very hot summer in Australia, I found out (the hard way) that these treats can become sticky. Best used on cooler days 🙂
