Do You Need Rider Insurance?

Who needs rider insurance?

If you ride but do not own a horse, it's definitely worth considering rider insurance, also known as rider only insurance. Riding accidents can happen to anyone at any time and it is important for all riders to consider whether they could cope financially if they had an accident whilst riding, or if the horse they were riding caused an accident involving other horses or third parties. So whether you have a horse on part loan, regularly ride at a riding school or only ride occasionally, Petplan Equine's Rider Plan can provide the cover that you need.

What benefits are included in rider insurance?

With cover available for children and adults aged 5-75 years old Petplan Equine's Rider Plan offers a host of benefits including:

  • A choice of personal accident cover plans including cover for dental treatment
  • Payment of up to £50 for every 24 hours you stay in hospital
  • Cover for your riding equipment if it is lost or stolen
  • Tuition fees for riders aged under 18 years if they cannot attend classes because of a riding injury
  • Emergency vets fees up to £1,500 for the horse being ridden

Terms, conditions and excesses apply.
