Combines a balance of all the best aspects of vegetable oil.

Low Saturated Fat Count

Cold pressed rapeseed is known to be one of the healthiest oils on the market, low in saturated fats and containing an ideal balance of essential fatty acids Omega 3 and 6. Both are easily digested by horses and have positive anti-inflammatory qualities which help joint and heart function and blood flow.

Best Natural Omega 3

Provides a good natural source of Omega 3. This oleic acid/mono unsaturated fat acts as an anti-oxidant which enables it to adjust the free radicals in the body, thereby making the metabolic system more efficient.

Vitamin E

The oil contains good levels of Vitamin E, an essential dietary nutrient for horses. This has been shown to have high importance in breeding, both in terms of fertility and during gestation and lactation. Decreased levels of vitamin E have been implicated in the etology of muscle damage ie tying up.

Cold pressed and filtered 3 times for a premium quality seed oil.

Cold pressing Ruffords rapeseed oil preserves the natural nutritional benefits of the oil including palatability and helps retain the balance of essential fatty acids, omega 3 & 6 and the anti-oxidant vitamin E. These can otherwise be destroyed by heat or chemical treatment.


Oils that have been denatured are altered in their chemical structure, may go rancid and taste different as a result, which horses soon pick up on. Our extensive tests on fatty acid profile when freshly pressed and again on a 12 month old sample checks for degradation. There is no discernible difference between the two which indicates that it is maintaining its freshness over time.


Ruffords cold pressed rapeseed oil is 3 times filtered for maximum quality. Just as you would only use the finest oil to run your car engine, we have created the most pure oil for your horse. As the old saying goes, you get out what you put in.
