Thoroughbred insurance

The thoroughbred industry is a big business spanning the globe. With all businesses, it is important to ensure that valued assets are adequately protected and thoroughbreds are no exception.

Our horse and pony package policy not only protects against the financial loss of a horse or pony but can also protect the owner against liability arising from the horse or pony, personal accident to the rider and the loss of saddlery & tack.
