A horse is a valuable asset whether owned for pleasure or professional use they require investment and care.

All Risk Horse Mortality & TheftMajor Medical & Surgical
This policy is available for foals, yearlings, stallions, mares and geldings of all breeds and types. We have designed this coverage to insure your horse against death from almost any cause. This includes transportation and humane destruction made necessary by an illness or accidental injury anywhere in the continental United States. Our carrier partners Horse Mortality Insurance & Major Medical Insurance is unique in the industry as our Basic Form includes coverage for theft and $3,000 colic surgery including aftercare at no additional cost. Policies automatically include Free Colic Surgery coverage, providing the horse does not have a history of colic problems. The coverage limit is 60% of the insured value with a maximum of $3,000 and no deductible. If you insure your horse for Major Medical Insurance or Surgical as well, you will have access to the maximum limits on both coverage parts. Guaranteed extension and agreed value coverage are also automatically included in full mortality policies. Veterinary exams and certificates are not required for horses under $100,000.This coverage will help you control unforeseen veterinary expenses for events related to the health of your animal. This valuable endorsement covers up to $7,500, $10,000 or $15,000 of reasonable and customary veterinary, medical and surgical care charges necessitated by accident, injury or illness. Humane destruction is covered under the policy but economic destruction is not. If you choose to put your horse down for financial reasons, the policy will not offer coverage for this. Not all policies are created equally. The adage “you get what you pay for” is very true. For example, most policies impose a time limit for how long the insurer will cover a medical problem. This limit varies between companies and can be as short as four weeks. Our insurance carrier policies will cover for the problem for the entire policy period in which it happened. This can be quite important if you are dealing with a serious problem like EPM where the necessary medication and care is both lengthy and costly.
