As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

From the Cantering Chef's gourmet kitchen right to your door. The mashes are made using simple ingredients that your horse (and his friends!) will love. The Starlight Holiday Bran Mash makes a wonderful gift for your horse's barn buddies. Each bag is approximately 36 oz. Buy a Case of 4 and Save!

Simply pour the mixture into a bucket or feed pan and add two quarts of warm water. Allow the bran to soak for 15 minutes. Serve to your horse warm.

Ingredients: about 15 Peppermints (wow!), dehydrated carrot pellets, flax seed meal, wheat bran.

    The Cantering Chef Bran Mash is rated 4.7073 out of 5 by 41.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Horses! I bought the 4 pack as a gift to the horses at my boarding stable. The horses were given the warm mash on Christmas morning and they didn't look up until the food pans were licked clean! The ages of the horses ranged from 3 to 34, a gelding and 3 mares. I will probably be ordering this again for birthdays!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Christmas Present for Barn Buddies I give this as a present every year for the owner and other horses stabled at the barn I board my mare at. Every year this gift is a hit with owners and horses alike. Even for the picky horses in the barn who normally do not eat mash, the Cantering Chef mash with peppermint and carrots is a welcome treat. Highly recommend this as a present or fabulous treat for you and the horse you love.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice treat I gave the bran mash as a cold day treat to two of my picky eaters. They both happily slurped it up. It is a nice product that the horses enjoyed and makes a nice gift to fellow horse owners.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bran mash The horses love it! We split the bag between my horse and my husband's horse. Easily feeds 2 horses so a great value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Christmas Gift Idea!! I love this mash as it is great as a cheaper christmas gift to all the people at the barn. All the horses at my barn have thoroughly enjoyed it including the horse who generally refuses to eat anything besides grain, hay and grass. Overall very good mash and i continue to buy it every year!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cantering Chef Bran Mash This product has great texture, is easy to mix with other treats or feed and has a very pleasing smell. I was first introduced to it last year--one of my fellow boarders mixed it for her warmblood and he loved it. I decided to try it on my horse. My mare becomes very excited when she smells it. I sometimes mix the bran mash in with her alfalfa cubes, soak them both and let her enjoy a great post-ride treat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy! No surprise there. Santa brought this for our horse last Christmas and she loved it! She loves peppermint (along with most other foods), so it was no surprise. Good job, Santa!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from YUCK! Neither of my horses would eat this. I thought they would because of there love of pepermint. It looked and smelled great! I would have eaten it! They usually eat anything. But, No way! Good luck.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing My horse -- who has a long history of eating virtually anything and LOVES other bran mashes I have tried -- really didn't care for this. I have no idea why, since the ingredients appear to be pretty standard. But he left most of it, and two other horses in the barn appeared similarly unenthusiastic, so it definitely wasn't a good value for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yummy Yummy Yummy This is more than a holiday mash... this is a year round treat for my horse --- especially since peppermints are his favorite! He dives right into his feed buck even before I can pour it all in there. Particularly good in the cold weather with warm water.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value My horses loved this mash. It really makes enough for two horses to share. They really loved the peppermints in it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Treat! I buy this each year when it is available. Some years I miss out because I delay and it is sold out. My horses love it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice for a one horse spoiling day... It took a little while for my mare to get around to eating it, so I left her to her own devices in the stall and decided to come back later to see what the verdict was: the bucket was clean as a whistle. It's rather expensive for a single serving, but was fine for one special day for my mare and my friend's gelding. Good amount of peppermints and carrot bits.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Mash My horse LOVED this mash early Christmas morning. Makes a very generous amount. I just purchased a case for monthly winter treats.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Christmas Gift I Have Ever Given!!! I gave this mash as a gift to 3 of my friends keeping the 4th one of the case for myself. The bags of mash are very large, and are defiantly worth the money (i divided my bag in 2 and was able to give my horse mash on different days). My horse absolutly loved his and he is usually a very pickey eater. The other horses that recieved this as a christmas gift were very mad at their owners for not giving it to them the second it was opened!!! These horses were able to smell it and they just wanted some right away!!! Overall I am very glad I decided to give this to the horses and their owners as gifts, and some of the owners have even talked about buying this as a treat after shows, on birthdays or other special occasions!!!

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
