Horse Insurance FAQs
We offer a range of different Vet Fee cover options for you to choose from, depending on your horses age, value and the activities you are participating in.
Vet Fee cover provides the insured horse with cover for non-routine veterinary procedures. As a result, Vet Fee cover can be extremely beneficial and will help you to make sure your horse receives the veterinary attention required after an injury without you, the horse owner, having to worry about the cost.
Yes, in order to protect your equipment, our Horse insurance policies can provide cover for the physical loss or damage and theft of your Tack in respect of the actual value at the time of loss but not exceeding the sum insured. Cover can be included for sums insured up to and including £10,000, with the excess £100 for each and every loss.
Security requirements must be met in order for saddlery and tack to be covered, including the tack being locked away with a key in the door type lock (rather than a padlock) and the tack room being alarmed if there are more than 10 horses on the yard.
Yes, KBIS are able to provide cover for horses that are on loan. If you are insuring a loan horse you will need to provide our Horse insurance team with a copy of the loan agreement. This means that KBIS can direct any claim settlements to the right party (Veterinary Fee claims are usually settled to the loanee whilst mortality and loss of use claims payments are settled to the owner).
Do double check that the horse is not currently insured by the owner, as it may be more beneficial to keep the existing policy in place until renewal than (in order to not have a limitation period placed on the new policy). If you decide to wait until the expiry of the existing policy, check out our insurance insight on moving insurers at renewal.
