As part of your pony insurance policy, public liability cover will protect you against the costs incurred by members of the public suffering personal injury or property damage because of your horse. Most policies will typically offer a minimum amount of £2 million for pony liability if you are sued because your pony has caused injury or damage, and can cover up to £5 million. Contact our team for your specific requirements.
The cost of advertising a missing pony will be covered by the insurance up to a specific amount if your pony is stolen or strays. You may be covered for the market value, or the sum insured of the pony, whichever is lesser, if it is not found within 28 days of being stolen or straying.
Equine mortality insurance protects you against the financial costs of the accident, illness or disease suffered by your pony (as long as it’s not a pre-existing condition). Disposal and euthanasia costs may also be covered in your pony insurance policy.
Lawshield, personal injury, uninsured losses and contract disputes cover up to £50,000.
To include tack such as saddles and bridles.
Personal accident cover insures you and anyone else (riding or in charge of your pony, with your granted permission) accidental bodily injury, dental costs, and death, solely while riding or handling your pony. Speak to one of our specialists about adding this optional extra to your pony insurance policy.
A pony is an expensive investment. Illness, injury, theft, or an accident can happen at any time and may result in high financial costs. Accidents involving your pony may result in you being seriously injured or legally responsible to pay large amounts of compensation and legal bills. The pony insurance policy is designed to protect you against unplanned costs, should the worst happen.
Public liability insurance protects you against legal costs incurred as a result of injuries to members of the public and damage to property, caused by your pony.
Personal accident cover insures you and anyone else riding your pony with your permission, against death and accidental injury caused directly by riding or handling. Note this does not cover riding for financial gain.
An excess is the part of a claim that you pay for yourself. Excess fees vary between pony insurance policies. Be sure to check your excess fees as well as your premium when selecting an equestrian insurance product. You may be offered a ‘flat excess’, which will remain the same regardless of the amount of the claim, or a ‘co-insurance contribution excess, which will be a percentage of the amount claimed.
Permanent loss of use cover is an optional additional extension and covers you for the sum of purchasing another pony for the originally intended purpose(s), if your pony can no longer be used for the activities you insured it for. However, if your pony is still capable of breeding, or undertakes low-level activities such as hacking, the insurer will usually only cover part of the sum.
While death, theft and straying of your pony are included as standard, we also offer optional extras under our pony insurance policies, including:
