Product Review – The German Horse Muffin

Updated: May 11, 2020

I wanted to do a review on one of our home barn’s MOST used products. The German Horse Muffin by Equus Magnificus. If you asked any of my horses, it would also be considered a necessity. “Will work for German Horse Muffins” is a real thing!

These generously sized horse cookies have been a hit even for my pickiest treat eaters. I suspect the secret to the German Horse Muffins is in their gooey texture and sweet taste. The human (and pig) taste test revealed a moist and sweet dough-like treat.

Boss Hog Approved!

The natural ingredients are fortified with vitamins so you can feel good about feeding this treat to your equine partners. I do cut the cookies in quarters for my ponies. The muffins are large, so when my kids go to grab them for the ponies, I find smaller bits are more proportional for feeding my already overly fed ponies. This is the ideal treat for feeding or giving medicines. The soft and chewy muffins are easy to mold around pills. They are also an excellent choice for doing horse stretch exercises or liberty work. Cole patiently waits for his post-ride treat on the cross ties almost every day. As soon as he hears the bag open, he pricks his ears and gives me a side-eyed look.

After initially opening the bag version, I do find the treats start to harden pretty quickly. Especially if you don’t re-close/zip the bag properly. Which, when giving multiple treats a day, can be a little time consuming to zip correctly. We will be trying the 14-pound EZ open buckets instead. Hopefully, this keeps the muffins fresher for longer.

The company was founded in 2002 by Jeannette Rosner, who was born and raised in Germany. They are based in Minnesota, USA, and are committed to providing high quality, natural horse treats that have no preservatives, no artificial flavors, and no artificial colors.

I highly recommend the German Horse Muffin, assuming you don’t mind funding your horse’s new, soon-to-be treat addiction.
