Honey is natural so it is 100% safe.
One tablespoon of honey (21 grams) contains 17 grams of sugar. Therefore, the main reason behind feeding honey to horses is that it's a readily available energy source.
Honey's sweetness might also entice picky eaters to consume their rations.
Honey is not considered to be inherently toxic or dangerous for horses. Honey is natural so it is 100% safe.
This food has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that can be helpful for horses with arthritis and other conditions.
The antibacterial properties that honey also possesses can be beneficial to your horse if it has a wound.
Applying a small amount of honey to your horse’s wound can reduce the chances of a bacterial infection while promoting healing.
If you apply honey to a large wound on your horse, you’ll want to keep it covered up. Consider using a gel with honey that isn’t very stick
Don't just take our word for it.....

Years ago a pony I had developed breathing problems after I moved him to another field. I gave him a spoonful of honey in some feed which I acquired from a friend who kept bees about a mile away from the field. After a few days of doing this he recovered completely.
