Your Horse and the Omega 3, 6, 9 Oils and Flax Oil

Omega 3, 6 and 9 are known as the Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs). Your horse CANNOT naturally produce these Omega Oils. In terms of importance, it follows the numbers - Omega 3 fatty acid is the most important Omega followed by Omega 6 fatty acid and then Omega 9 fatty acid. The two most important essential fatty acids are Omega 3 and Omega 6. Each of these Omega fatty acids aids your horse in a particular way.

Omega-3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatory and help reduce pain, swelling, promotes general well-being and is associated with glossy coats.

Omega-6 fatty acids are pro-inflammatory and helps to maintain your horse's immune system.

Imbalance of Omega-3 fatty acids and Omega-6 fatty acids or inadequate amounts of Omega 3 can affect your horse's temperament.

As you can see from the graph below, Flax Oil has by far the largest proportion of Omega 3 and the best ratio of Omega 3 fatty acids to Omega 6 fatty acids.

So, what is important is the amount of Omega 3 oil and the amount of the Omega 6 oil AND the balance of these oils. Flax Oil has been proven to be the best oil to add to your horse's feed. The table below shows flax oil composition compared to other popular alternatives
