Understanding Horse Insurance
Whether a horse is purchased for personal or business reasons, ownership represents a significant investment of time, money and resources. While no one likes to think about the potential for tragedy, horses seem to be prone to illness, accidents and injury.Should some peril befall your horse, nothing may ease the emotional burden, but wise planning can help reduce the economic impacts.
Owning a horse can be an expensive proposition, especially if you aren’t financially prepared. A horse that becomes seriously ill can cost you a fortune in vet bills. Should the worst happen and your horse doesn’t make it, you will not only be emotionally devastated, but you will lose your financial investment as well. If your horse is stolen and not recovered, you’ll be without a horse and without the funds to buy another.
One way to help protect your horse and your pocketbook is to purchase equine insurance. The right plan will help diffuse costs if your horse becomes sick and will reimburse you for his/her value if your horse passes away or is stolen.
The better you understand the ins and outs of equine insurance, the better you can protect your horse and yourself.

And what kind of losses might an owner sustain? The list includes replacing a horse which dies surgical and major medical expenses for the horse and liability costs should the horse cause injury or destruction to other parties. It’s not a cut-and-dried formula based on dollars and cents but an individual assessment based on dollars and sense.
The cost of insurance is minimal when compared to the overall costs of maintaining your horses, paying for colic surgery, or paying a lawsuit.

Equine Assisted Therapy
Equine Assisted Therapy is an evolving field in which horses are used as a tool for both physical therapy and emotional growth and learning. Many riders experience a connection to the horse that few sports or activities can create.
For those riders who cannot walk, the horse is their vehicle of transport. Not only does this help raise their self-esteem but it also teaches them essential skills. It improves balance, creates trust and creates a friendship between rider and horse.
The benefits of horseback riding are as numerous as the types of disabilities and conditions served. Research shows that students who participate in therapeutic riding can experience physical, emotional and mental rewards.
Personal Horse Owners Insurance
Affordable Horse Insurance with a level of protection you can’t afford to be without… Did you know that if you trailer or even simply ride a horse belonging to another person and an accident occurs, you could be held personally liable? Equine Liability Insurance is a necessity for horse owners, not a luxury. Even if your personal horse gets loose from a boarding stable and is hit by a motor vehicle, the cost of liability can be devastating.
Horse Owners are faced with unique liability exposures that may not be adequately covered under normal personal liability policies such as a homeowner policy.
The Equestrian Group has specifically designed an insurance policy to cover the horse owner’s legal liability for both bodily injury and property damage to others resulting from horse ownership.
Riding Club Liability
A riding club or association can be defined as any group that is formed to pursue common equestrian related interests. Riding clubs and associations form the core of most organized equestrian activity in the United States and Canada.
For as little as $400 per year our $1,000,000 riding club policy covers all club members if a law suit arises from a club activity. Coverage is provided for all club activities on owned or leased premises and products/completed operations and personal advertising injury can be included. Boarding, riding instruction, clinics and special events can be added by endorsement.
A farm package can also be written for clubs which own property. The basic policy premium includes the first 100 members and seven public events. Shows, clinics, gymkhanas and trail rides held by and for the sole benefit of members are automatically covered at no additional charge. Riding Club Application
