The standard Horse Insurance policy provides immediate cover for horses of all types and abilities, from hacking to polo.

Whether claiming for vet fees, loss of use, death of a horse, loss by theft or straying, personal accident, theft of saddlery and tack - or damage to trailers and horse drawn vehicles, forms are available at the click of a button. Those making third party liability claims are directed to the customer call centre.
