From pleasure to performance horses, CEN Oil is used successfully by horse owners all around Australia. Containing 60% Omega 3, CEN Oil provides a high-quality source of plant-based Omega 3 with a similar Omega profile to fresh pasture.


Skin & Coat HealthSKIN & COAT

Horses cannot make their own Omega 3 and must source it in their diet. It improves skin/coat health and shine. The anti-inflammatory properties promote less irritation in skin conditions such as QLD itch (Sweet itch).


CEN Oil is a cool source (non-heating) of calories ideal for all horses in work or needing to maintain condition in work.

Immune System HeathIMMUNE SYSTEM

Omega 3 contributes to the homeostasis of inflammatory responses (anti-inflammatory) and supports the activity of the immune system which regulates the non-specific inflammatory reactions.

Bone & Joint HealthJOINT HEALTH

The anti-inflammatory properties of Omega 3 help joint health especially seen in arthritic horses where chronic inflammation is evident.


Containing no sugar or starch, CEN Oil provides does not trigger “hot” behaviour due to the way it is metabolised.


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

Hoof Health Laminitis SafeHOOF 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.


Omega 3 Oil Comparison

CEN Oil is the best oil choice for horses due to the 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 – 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.”


In this podcast, Peter and Bryan discuss the details of the very popular CEN Oil and the benefits of Omega 3 for horses.

    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!

    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 🤞

    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.
