Flaxseed oil has gained significant attention in the equine community due to its potential health benefits for horses. A recent study conducted on this topic shed light on the advantages of incorporating flaxseed oil into equine diets.

Study – Effect of Dietary Flaxseed Oil Supplementation on the Redox Status, Haematological and Biochemical Parameters of Horses’ Blood

Enhanced Coat and Skin Health:

The study revealed that Flaxseed oil can greatly contribute to improving a horse’s coat and skin health. By supplementing their diet with Flaxseed oil, horse owners can expect to observe a shinier, softer, and healthier coat. Additionally, linseed oil has been shown to alleviate common skin issues, such as dryness, itching, and inflammation.

Support for Joint Function:

Another significant finding of the study was the positive impact of Flaxseed oil on joint health in horses. The omega-3 fatty acids present in Flaxseed oil possess anti-inflammatory properties, which can aid in reducing joint inflammation and promoting joint mobility. Horses suffering from arthritis or joint stiffness may benefit from the inclusion of Flaxseed oil in their diet.

Digestive Health Improvement:

Flaxseed oil has been found to have positive effects on equine digestive health. The study indicated that linseed oil can enhance digestion and absorption of nutrients, leading to better overall digestive function. Moreover, it may assist in preventing and alleviating common digestive issues, such as colic and gastric ulcers.

Boosting the Immune System:

The immune-boosting properties of flaxseed oil were highlighted in the study. The oil’s high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids helps strengthen the immune system, making horses less susceptible to infections and diseases. By incorporating Flaxseed oil into their diet, horse owners can aid in maintaining their horses’ optimal health and well-being.

Weight Management Support:

For horses struggling with weight management issues, Flaxseed oil can be a valuable addition to their diet. The study demonstrated that the oil’s healthy fat content helps regulate weight by promoting lean muscle development while reducing body fat. This makes Flaxseed oil an ideal dietary supplement for horses requiring weight gain or weight loss.

The research conducted on the benefits of Flaxseed oil for horses underscores its potential to significantly improve various aspects of equine health.

From enhancing coat and skin health to supporting joint function and boosting the immune system, Flaxseed oil has proven to be a valuable supplement for equine diets. By incorporating a quality Flaxseed oil such as CEN Oil, horse owners can contribute to their horse’s overall well-being and quality of life.


CEN Oil is highly suitable for ulcer-prone horses, due to its nutrient profile and anti-inflammatory properties.

Hoof Integrity

Omega 3 is important for the hoof wall microtubules and laminae so they are built with suppleness and strength. The slick-looking surfaces are brought from a network of fats and waxes. The function can be described as the “glue” holding the hoof together. They keep the environmental moisture out but the critical tissue moisture in.

Why CEN Oil is More Effective than Other Oils for Horses?

Graphic showing Omega 3 levels in Australian horses after taking CEN linseed oil

CEN Oil is the best oil choice for horses due to its high Omega 3 levels. Most oils contain Omega 6 and 9 but low Omega 3 (coconut oil contains no Omega 3 and is mainly saturated fat). There are many oils available on the market with an unnatural Omega profile, having higher levels of Omega 6 to Omega 3 (which is opposite to what is found in natural fresh pasture. (1)(2)). Dr. Juliet Getty – a highly regarded and internationally respected, independent equine nutritionist writes:

“Omega 3s block the formation of inflammatory molecules that are readily formed from Omega 6’s. Take a close look at the fat sources you are feeding to confirm that enough Omega 3’s are in the diet.”

Is FLAX SEED Oil similar to LINSEED Oil?

Yes, both Flaxseed Oil and Linseed Oil come from the linseed seed, it is just a difference in terminology — Linseed Oil is the name given to industrial grade oil (the kind you find in hardware stores to stain wood) and Flax Seed Oil is the term used for food grade oil.  Our oils meet food grade standards, hence it is termed Flax Seed Oil.

  1. Amy Cullen

    CEN Oil is one of my favourite CEN products! I have been using CEN since they first began and I have never looked back.
    My horses love the oil, licking their buckets clean every feed! Their coats are soft and shiny, gleaming with health from inside an out. I really noticed their coats start to develop their shine after just under a week of use. It has also really improved the overall health and well-being of my horses, giving them the extra calories, immune system boost, and Omega 3 provided through the oil.
    Definitely cannot go wrong with this product and recommend to anyone wanting to give it a try!

  2. Jess Fittock

    Amazing product!
    Absolutely love CEN oil I recommend it to all of my clients for all horses great and small and now they are all hooked, super good for ultimate coat shine but also for general equine well being just love it!

  3. April (verified owner)

    We have recently started our gallopers on Cen Oil and have already seen our finicky eaters improve. We are in the middle of winter but we have shiny healthy coats all round. We only have a small team in work so we took the opportunity to start with the smaller 4.5L and have seen the benefits within the first week, making us more confident to go to the bigger drums. Hopefully we see the same results when they hit the track ?

  4. Julie (verified owner)

    Coats are incredibly soft and shiny!

  5. Tracy Turner

    Support on the phone, educational podcasts. You name it, these guys have got it covered. No question is ever too much hard work for the team at CEN. My mare has been on the oil for a few years now. Her shiny coat is the envy of all the other horses. Thank you

  6. Hayley S (verified owner)

    I’ve only just started to feed this to my horse and seriously within 1 day I noticed a difference in his coat. It is already softer and shinier! My horse loves the taste as well and licks the oil off the bottom of the bucket! I’m really looking forward to seeing what more this product has to offer as I continue to feed it to him!

  7. Tam (verified owner)

    Love this product started using it on an ulcer prone 3 y old just back from the trainers and needing to out on condition (not trainers fault just a stressy hard to manage horse)
    He looks AMAZING so shiny even when totally filthy has gained and maintaining a good weight and his mane and tail re growing like crazy!

    We now feed all our horses CEN Oil as a standard in their diet!

  8. Maddy (verified owner)

    Excellent quality oil at a great price! My horses love it. The 10L pour cap design is super handy. Thanks!

  9. Teneal (verified owner)

    Absolutely love CEN oil! I have 6 horses all different sizes and breeds and they all look and feel great on it. Wish the 10L drums came with a pump top though, it would make it so much easier

  10. Lynette (verified owner)

    CEN products are amazing!! My horses and dogs have never looked better!! Highly recommended!!

  11. Drew Crabbe

    I have been using the CEN oil on my horse for a few months now and the results have been incredible! During the winter my horse lost a fair amount of weight and muscle, which then affected his coat. He is a beautiful dark chestnut with very healthy skin 80% of the time but after his numerous rugs, his fur became very frail and dull. I put him on the CEN oil to help with his weight loss and within weeks his coat was shinning again, he gained weight, which then lead to gaining muscle and he currently looks amazing! I cannot recommend these products enough, they are worth every penny.

  12. Sharon (verified owner)

    I have only been using it for a very short time, not sure how much to give her (Molly), she is a 27 year old Thoroughbred and is such a guts, when I first gave her the oil, she turned her nose up at it, but I left it and said she had to eat it, well ,low and behold, the next day she licked her container dry and now I add to her feed and she loves it.
    Because it has only been a short while, I am noticing little changes, i.e hooves are a bit better, have improved, her coat is looking better and I know with ongoing use, there will be lots of positive changes.

  13. Stephanie

    CEN Oil is an absolute must-have in my feed room, and was the first CEN product that I tried my horses on. After seeing such incredible results (softer and shinier coats, better hoof health, anti-inflammatory properties and improved well-being) I have put all of my personal and client horses onto a full CEN diet. I recommend these products to everybody… they are CEN-sational. ?

  14. DaniRose (verified owner)

    Omg what a must for horses! Coats are luscious, healthy and shiny and has definitely seemed to help my new itchy horse’s coat! Very impressed with this oil and will be trying the CEN Oil for dogs aswell. ??

  15. Mccully (verified owner)

    I have been using Cen Oli for a month now ,wow what a difference it has made to my horses and dogs. My dog has been on steroids for allergy’s for over 12 months now . Since using cen oil he is off all meds and no more scratching anymore.

  16. Amii (verified owner)

    I’ve been using cen oil for years, and it really helps with the general overall health and well-being of the horses. I’ve had pregnant mares on it and the foals have been born healthy and strong.
    It’s keeping my horses healthy on the inside and it shows on the outside!

  17. Molly (verified owner)

    Really fast shipping even to a rural area. Great product for your horses, definitely recommend.

  18. Emily (verified owner)

    My horses coats have never looked shinier since being on CEN oil and it’s reassuring to know they are getting their omegas even when the grass is low. No worries about the oil going rancid. CEN oil is a consistently very high quality product.

  19. Jeanette (verified owner)

    I have been feeding Cen oil for my horses for the last month and have noticed an improvement in both their coats. My mare is an itchy horse and have noticed an improvement since feeding the oil.

  20. Gina (verified owner)

    Only positive things to say about CEN. This great Australian company spear-headed by the lovely Magellan has taught me so much about horse nutrition. The time, attention and advice I get over the phone has been so helpful and I now have a plan to condition my two bony thoroughbreds. The range of CEN products is great – ordering, payment, packaging and speedy delivery have been seamless. I’m definitely a CEN fan!

  21. kyladuplessis (verified owner)
