Horse recovery of low stamina and health using elixirs

Having practiced all the usual bonding techniques with my horse, it is now stronger and healthier than at the beginning of the game, the personal bond is strong too.

However, the problem is there seems to be no way to feed the horse any of the elixirs you carry in your satchel at any given time. For example... let's say you're riding from Valentine to Rhodes (one of the challenges in the game) and your horse starts to tire as his stamina is critically low. In my satchel I have a number of elixirs and food items that would help the horse recover more quickly (as this is what works for Arthur Morgan when he's low). For some reason you cannot feed the horse these elixirs either from the saddle or when standing next to it. The items are greyed out in the inventory and cannot be selected to give to the horse.

Consequently they are totally pointless items and just take up valuable rom in your inventory.

Can anyone explain why this is and if there is some way of using them?

Thanks

You don't give the horse items from your satchel, you hold L1 or LB, and then you hit R1 or RB and chose the horse, and there you can feed or give the horse the medicine or food to gain stamina.

Not sure what settings you use, but this isn't readable on my screen.
