They can eat alot of different kinds of fruit. Such as any kind of melon, apples, pears, plums, blueberries. They especially love watermelon with the rind. Just be carful not to give them too much, because fruits do contain sugar, and fruits are not their primary diet, so too much could get them sick.

Whenever I visit my aunt and her horses in Idaho, I always feed them frozen real fruit popsicles on a hot summers day. They LOVE them. And it is healthy for them. I would be eating my own right by the fence and they would come over and take it out of my hand :) it is very funny.
Also something to note - an insulin resistant horse cannot have many of these fruits and vegetables. You'd be surprised at how many veggies have sugar in them. Carrots for example are a big no no for such a horse. I buy my ir mare treats made for diabetics. She loves the sugar free twizzlers. Probably her favorite. Unsalted, raw, peanuts in the shell is another treat she loves.
- Normal horse stuff like hay, grass, oats etc. - Apples - Carrots - Polo Mints - Bananas - Pears - Oranges - crisps (in small amounts) - Raspberries - Blueberries - blackberries - Grapes - Bread (in small amounts)
Some horses are just greedy though and will eat anything though. Where I ride, there's this one horse he's absolutely adorable and cute. and he will eat or at least chew on absolutely anything. I give him apples, carrots and polo mints every time I go to the farm. :D He's just like a goat,I absolutely love him to pieces though that's why I feed him sooo much stuff. :P I wish he was my horse (except he's way to big for me to ride yet... :( ) He's ripped off at least one zip (he spat it out tho) and wanted to eat a carrier bag once but I stopped him. I've fed horses biscuits (only oaty ones tho) and seen people give crisps and yogurt. The stallion who ate yogurt, a little ,bout 12 hand mayb, pulled a horrible face tho and spat it out on the floor so you can take that as a no. Horses really enjoy crisps though.
As far as my sister(farrier) says, horses can eat any fruits or veggies just not tomatoes. Tomatoes are very unhealthy for them and can burn through there stomaches. But you can feed any fruits/veggies to your horses.
