YES - Treats can be an invaluable training tool. Owners can choose to reward their horse(s) for any reason; however, it's important that only owners give their own horses treats. Visitors and other owners may think that their being "nice" by sharing treats with other horses, but feeding a horse that you don't know can be putting that horses' health at risk. Treats can cause choking or they can irritate an allergy. The best practice at GBEC is to ask the horse's owner if it's okay.
