Follow these tips, your horse will thank you!

1. Good quality hay makes all the difference

Whether indoors or outdoors make sure you have good quality hay for your horse! As winter falls your horse will have less access to pasture and if hay is scarce consider supplementing their hay requirements. In addition to camelina oil we find that beet pulp or hay cubes are excellent sources of additional fiber!

2. Make sure your horses have access to clean, unfrozen water

Horses prefer water that is not freezing cold and will drink more with access to heated water buckets and troughs. Your horse will thank you for it ;)

3. Make sure they have access to a shelter

The Canadian winters can get quite cold not only for us but also for our horses. If your horse lives out 24/7 make sure they have access to a shelter so they can get out of the wind and snow.

4. Check & monitor your horse's body condition

If you blanket your horse and don’t groom or ride often during the colder months make sure you are checking and monitoring the body condition of your horse under its blankets. Don’t leave them for a month without checking- you could be in for an upsetting surprise!

5. Supplement Your Horse With Balanced Omega3/6 Fatty Acids

Over the winter your horse lacks the same access to pasture as it has during the warmer months. That means your horse is likely lacking the omega 3|6 balance it requires in order to function properly (hay contains very little omegas).

That's why it's important to supplement your horse's diet with a supplement like Smart Earth's Camelina Oil for Equine this winter season!
