Horse Cookies

Treat your horse like family.  

Is your horse overweight?  Has he been diagnosed with Laminitis, Founder, EPSM, Cushings, Pituitary Dysfunction, Insulin Resistance (IR) or Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS)?

Nicker Treats created the first crunchy low-starch cookie, and we are the #1 most trusted low-starch, low-sugar treat on the market today, with both lab-verified low NSC and low glycemic index*, as well as superior, guaranteed, palatability.  

Alfalfa recipe treats contain NO BEET PULP.  Only organic ground flax seed and alfalfa .  They are SUPER low in starch and sugar, with a total NSC value of 6.11.

ENDURANCE AND TRAIL RIDERS! These treats will not end up as a pile of crumbs in your pocket. Nicker Treats are perfectly designed for treating on the trail!

NSC value is a calculation that the lab makes, incorporating both starch and sugar for a total value.  If your current treat does not provide both sugar and starch figures, there is no guarantee that you are feeding a treat that will not spike your horse’s blood glucose levels.

Nicker Treats are crunchy, which is the preferred texture for a horse.  They have a long shelf life (up to 12 months, stored in dry and cool conditions) and guaranteed to hold up in your pocket.  I believe in these treats and in the quality of the ingredients that I use.  That is why your satisfaction is guaranteed**.

The addition of stabilized rice bran to our original formula creates a healthy calcium to phosphorous ratio, as well as providing over 120 known antioxidants, cofactors and catalysts - including Tocotrienols, Tocopherols, Phytosterols, CoQ10, Alpha Lipoic Acid, IP6, Gamma Oryzanol and Omega 3.

Creating Nicker Treats is a labor of love for me.  My education and passion for nutrition started as a Dietetics Major at the University of Wisconsin.  When I discovered that one of our Arabian horses was insulin-resistant, and that the breed itself is pre-disposed to metabolic disease, I hired an equine nutritionist.  With her guidance, I came up with a recipe that would take the next three years to perfect.


I created these treats for my personal horses and, through the encouragement of friends and family, placed them on the market for others to enjoy.  Ours is a small operation, and our treats are made lovingly by hand when your order is placed.  We do not bake our treats.  They are dehydrated slowly to retain important nutrients.  We bake your cookies to order.  Please allow 7 days for processing and delivery.
