Identify the Friend or Foe Plants for Foraging Horses
For horse riders there’s nothing better than hacking out on a beautiful day, whether it’s a crisp autumn morning or a delightful spring day, and enjoying the fresh air and surroundings. And the horse will enjoy it too – especially if they can do a bit of foraging along the way.
Horses love snacking on anything from thistles and grass to oak leaves and wild garlic. And while some plants can be good for them (find out more about useful herbs for horses here), others can be toxic – and they don’t always know the difference. So it’s vital for horse owners and riders to know which plants are safe and which are not.
Make yourself familiar with plants, and whether they are friend or foe to your horse here.
