Is your horse properly insured?

We all know that insurance is an important part of life!
From car insurance, health insurance, homeowners insurance and life insurance, just to name a few. Most of us are fairly familiar with these types of insurance and how to navigate the system. However, when it comes to equine insurance many people are left scratching their heads. Do I need it? What kind? How much?

Equine insurance is highly varied based upon your needs, your horse(s), usage, etc... some of the most general and common types of equine insurance are Full Mortality, Loss of Use, Surgical and Major Medical. Then there are a host of others to consider such as Specified Perils, Stallion Availability and International Air Transit just to name a few!

So how do you decide what type of insurance you need? Well the best answer would be to talk with a professional such as your trainer and with an Equine Insurance Specialist. A insurance specialist can help you to determine what type of insurance would be best for you.

  1. I have some good friends that are really into horses, and they were telling me how critical it is to have horse medical insurance. They had one horse that needed all sorts of medical help, and if weren't for horse insurance, they wouldn't have been able to save him. Thanks for sharing this!

  2. One of my friends casually mentioned something about horse insurance the other day. I had no idea it was even a thing before then.


We enjoy hearing what you have to say!
