All horses can benefit from the protein quality hemp seeds provide. Even if your horse is overweight, improving the protein quality will allow the amino acids in the diet to be used to produce and repair body proteins. If only one source of protein is fed, many amino acids will not be utilized and will instead, be converted to glucose, fat, or burned for energy - all of which are not how protein should be used.
For more discussion on this topic, please read, "Four Directions Amino Acids Can Take - the importance of feeding several protein sources."
Hemp seeds are high in beneficial fats, including essential fatty acids linoleic acid (an omega 6) and alpha linolenic acid (ALA) (an omega 3). They also contain gamma linolenic acid (GLA) which is an omega 6 but actually decreases inflammation, unlike too much linoleic acid.
