Commercial Equine Liability

Equine liability insurance is indispensable for an insured with a horse-related business. In today’s litigious society, protection against liability claims is an utmost necessity. Even with waivers and state laws designed to limit or control liabilities, commercial equine operations are vulnerable; and, win or lose, a lawsuit will cost you something.

If you have insureds that board, breed, race or train horses, give riding instruction, conduct these activities on rented premises, or own an equine facility protected by property insurance, but not liability insurance, they need Commercial Equine Liability coverage.

We offer affordable and dependable liability coverage designed specifically for horse-related operations, including boarding, breeding, training and racing facilities, pony rides, horse shows, sales and riding instruction.

If your insured is the target of a lawsuit, money isn’t the only thing that’s at stake. Their reputation is on the line, too. Our insurance professionals have years of experience handling equine liability claims. They’ll ensure that a claim against your insured is resolved fairly, with consideration for all parties involved.
