Every member of our equestrian insurance team at Shearwater Insurance knows and understands horses, and we’ve got over 100 years’ experience between us in the equestrian insurance sector.
As the equine industry has evolved, our service offerings have expanded to cater for demand through a broader scope of products.
If it’s an area that can be covered, we’ll know about it at Shearwater, and what’s more, we’ll have the resources to source it. After all, we have our own horses and equine activities to handle, so we know what makes good protection.
Shearwater understands the needs of every horse owner and each member of the equestrian team has direct experience in the equestrian world.
Shearwater understands how the industry works and can provide equestrian insurance cover to protect you against all possible liability claims and ultimately protect you against financial difficulty.
Shearwater‘s vast experience in the horsebox and trailer market means we are uniquely placed to understand the needs of every horsebox owner. Our industry standing allows us to negotiate exclusive protection for all types of horseboxes and trailers including breakdown cover.
We’ve had over 20 years to get to grips with the specialist insurance needed to cover horseboxes. In that time, we’ve looked after thousands of clients’ horseboxes with policies from not only some of the best-known names in the UK insurance industry, but those who offer some of the most competitive and comprehensive protection in the market.
The advice and guidance you receive from Shearwater comes from years of experience, and ensure that any additional thrills and spills that aren’t part of the spectacle can be prepared for.
A pony ride insurance policy arranged by Shearwater is simple and effective. It will help cover you for public liability, so anyone who suffers an injury can be compensated without impacting on your finances, and legal expenses if a claim dispute does draw you into legal proceedings.
As a specialist equestrian broker, you can be sure that your needs will be met with a clear understanding of your requirements. We’ve encountered a colourful variety of claims since our establishment and so we’re well prepared for most eventualities.
We work alongside many freelance riding instructors and trainers to ensure that their equestrian business is in safe hands. In doing so, we’ve given ourselves the experience to create effective policies that can help ensure you’re financially covered.
This leaves you to concentrate fully on the task at hand, focusing on your clients’ learning and development, knowing that you’re financially protected if something goes wrong. This is the case whether you’re a riding instructor within a school or you train others at their own stables.
From small stable outfits to state of the art equestrian centres – it doesn’t matter to us at whether you’re one or the other, or somewhere in between. What matters to us is that if you’re affected by fire, flood or theft, you have already taken measures to help rebuild, refit and restock, so that peace can once again be restored.
All this will be done with the guidance of experts who literally know equine premises inside out, from indoor arenas to cross country courses.
By law, if you are moving goods, in this case, horses, ponies and donkeys in exchange for money, you must have the relevant certificate and qualification to cover equine transit for journeys. Without this, you will not be able to put this insurance in place.
If your business revolves entirely around the safe transportation of other people’s horses, there is nothing to gain by opting for substandard insurance, as the risks could just be too great. At Shearwater we know precisely what cover you need in place to be well protected in your business operations, while giving your customers the confidence in your services. We also include Public Liability as standard.
