Camelina Oil is a calorie-dense fat source that can be used to replace grain in the horse’s diet. It provides cool energy for exercising horses and increases the energy density of the diet to support weight gain.

Camelina oil is extruded from the Camelina sativa plant (aka false flax). It is typically served as a top-dressing to grain and other supplements.

Camelina oil delivers high amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids, including omega-3, -6, and -9 fatty acids. It contains the omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). However, it contains less omega-3 fatty acids (39%), compared to flax/linseed oil (54%) and it costs more per serving.

In order for ALA to exert a beneficial anti-inflammatory effect on the body, it must first get converted into DHA or EPA. This process is inefficient with only 5-15% of ALA getting converted to DHA. This is why some horses see greater benefits with fish oil and microalgal DHA.

Camelina oil is a natural source of small levels of Vitamin E (150 IU per 100ml). This protects the oil against oxidative damage of the fatty acids in the product and improves shelf life compared to flax oil.

Replacing grains with oils in your horse’s diets can reduce starch overload in the hindgut. This helps to reduce the risk of digestive dysfunction including hindgut acidosis, ulcers, and colic.

When equine diets contain oils in place of grain, horses are likely to be less excitable and easier to handle. Supplemental oils have added benefits for performance horses by improving exercise endurance and recovery. Fats produce less heat when they are broken down for energy and are generally metabolized slower than starch and sugars.

Horses with insulin resistance, Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS), or Cushing’s/PPID should be fed as little grain as possible. Fats are an appropriate energy source for these horses should they need additional calories in their diet.

Oils can be introduced to equine diets starting at a rate of 30 ml per day and increased based on caloric need. Fat should be added to the diet gradually over a two- to three-week period. The total daily amount should be divided into multiple meals. Fat content should not exceed 8% in the total equine diet, except for performance horses with elevated energy demands.
