Camelina oil offers what many horses require in a healthy diet: Easily digestible Omega Fatty Acids.
Most horse owners are familiar with the benefits of flax and rice bran in horses diets but these feedstuffs can come with risks such as rancidity and short shelf lives. Flax Oil comes with an Omega 6:3 ratio of 1:4 and Rice Bran oil comes with a ratio of 20.88:1. Smart Earth Seeds Camelina oil has a Omega 6:3 ratio of 1:1.2-1.6 making it the more balanced choice. Omega 6's are pro-inflammatory- if picking between Rice Bran & Flax the obvious choice would be Flax oil. But Flax oil does not offer the balanced ratios that Smart Earth Seeds Camelina oil does. Many end users chose to feed flax seed rather then the pricier flax oil- great caution should be used as horses cannot digest the hard outer shell of flaxseed and flaxseed needs to be ground- once ground however, fatty acids in flax go through rapid degradation causing rancidity. Smart Earth Seeds Camelina oil offers not only a more balanced ratio of Omega 6:3 but also offers stability, a much longer shelf life, and an ease of use that flax simply cannot give you.

There really is no comparison between Camelina and Canola/Corn oil. Corn/ Canola oil contains almost all Omega 6's which are pro-inflammatory with minimal Omega 3's.
