Just like there are plenty of things we can’t eat, your horse is the same – horses have complicated digestive systems that can’t cope with certain foodstuffs, so it’s important to know what’s safe and what isn’t. Rather than play trial and error or using guesswork, it’s best to do a bit of research and make a checklist.

The following infographic from Country & Stable is a fantastic resource, clearly displaying what you should and shouldn’t feed your horse. It covers what foods can be potentially harmful, so you know what to steer clear of, as well as possibly problematic plants and foliage that you should ensure is nowhere near your fields and yard.

Some of the foods and plants featured here are highly toxic to horses, some are OK to feed in moderation but not in large quantities, and some of the items present a choking hazard. It also lists some healthy treats that are great to feed to your horse in case you’re stuck for new and tasty foods for your horse.

All of the information in the graphic is reliable, having been approved by a qualified vet, making it a beneficial resource that you can print off, stick up in your stables, or just save as a reference on your computer.
