Can horses have caffeine?

In terms of health, yes. Caffeine doesn't do anything nasty to horses. However, it's a restricted substance in racing and while the FEI no longer bans it (Some studies indicate it may enhance performance but others show a negligible effect), some showing authorities also consider it a banned substance. Because of this, chocolate and caffeine should be kept away from the feed of show and race horses.
