With the high calorie demands of elite performance horses, oils play an important role in maximising energy efficiency due to their energy dense nature. Oils contain approximately 2.5 times more energy than most raw cereal grains and are also digested more efficiently in the horse’s small intestine. This in turn reduces the ‘sugar high’ sometimes associated with high grain intake and subsequent behavioural problems.
The high concentration of cool energy provided by oils also makes products such as RBO® Equine Performance Oil ideal for horses undertaking sustained aerobic activity such as endurance. This is largely due to the fact that the body is particularly efficient in metabolising fat aerobically at this level of exercise intensity, and as such produces less lactic acid.
By virtue of the presence of essential fatty acids, oils can also improve the shine and overall quality of a horse’s coat. For this reason the addition of oil such as RBO® Equine Performance Oil is desirable for sales and show preparation.
Older horses can benefit from oil as a cool, efficient energy source, as deterioration in their digestive efficiency limits the ability to fully process more complex energy sources such as grain.
