Pony & Riding Club Insurance

KBIS offer a flexible insurance policy for branches of the pony club and riding or driving clubs, including non-affiliates, to cover property, liability and personal accident insurance.

The property section of the policy can include insurance cover for both owned and hired property as well as the option to include cover against vehicle damage (caused by a horse).

“Ensure your club’s property is protected against loss or damage, cover can be included for both hired and owned equipment.”

The personal accident section of the policy can include cover for club members, when riding at a club event, and also for instructors, officials and voluntary helpers.

For Riding Clubs which are non-affiliates to British Riding Clubs (BRC) and therefore do not receive liability insurance under the BRC membership scheme, we can provide an insurance policy to cover Public Liability and, if needed, Employers Liability.

We can also provide specialist Event and Show insurance, including event cancellation insurance for any shows you are running.

Pony & Riding Club Insurance – Cover Available

Property Insurance

You can include cover for property owend by the branch or club as well as including items which are temporarily on hire such as PA systems. 

For property owned, such as trailers, showjumps, trophies, and dressage boards, cover is included for physical loss or damage, including if it is on hire or being lent out to a third party.

Equipment should be insured for its current market value taking into account depreciation as in the event of a claim you will be reimbursed the cost of a new replacement less a deduction for wear, tear and depreciation.

For hired in equipment cover is for ‘replacement as new’ and so the sum you insure for should be for the full new replacement cost. Cover is on a temporary basis, up to 30 days per year.

Cover includes such activities as course building, both show jumps and cross country fences, as well as when travelling to and from official events.

Frequently Asked questions

How much should I insure the club’s property for?

Equipment owned by the club should be insured for its current market value taking into account depreciation as in the event of a claim you will received the cost of a new placement less a deduction for wear, tear and depreciation.

It is not necessary to specify and list each item to be insured individually, but instead to state the total sum to be insured for owned equipment and the total sum to be insured for hired equipment. Therefore if additional equipment is purchased during the policy period you only need to notify KBIS if the total value at risk exceeds the current sum insured.

For hired equipment it is important to insure for the full cost of a new replacement as under this section of the policy cover is for ‘replacement as new.’ Before insuring any hired equipment first check that the insurance for the equipment is your responsibility. In some cases insurance cover may be included in the hire fee.

Does the equipment need to be locked away?

If the policy covers caravans and/or trailers you will need to comply with the insurer’s security requirements. This means that the items should be secured with a hitch lock and wheel clamp when not in use.

All other equipment should be kept in a secure place when not in use, such as a locked building, storage unit or suitable trailer.

KBIS understand that there are times when equipment (excluding caravans and trailers) has to be left unsecured overnight such as when you’re preparing for an event.The policy will cover these items whilst left in the open but subject to an increased excess.

Our team will be able to advise you of the specific policy requirements if you have additional queries.

Do I have to pay an excess?

You will have to pay an excess when claiming under the property section of the policy. The excess will vary depending on the property being claimed for and the security measures that were in place at the time of the loss. The least you will have to pay is £75 and the most is £125, for each and every loss. Further details relating to the excesses applicable are stated in the policy key facts and terms and conditions.

There is no excess to pay under the personal accident section of the policy, however if the claim is for cover under temporary total disablement then cover will be excluded for the first 7 or 14 days, depending on the policy taken out, of each and every disablement.

Can you provide liability insurance for a Pony Club?

As a club branch to the Pony Club your liability insurance is provided through the Pony Club’s own liability policy which is why we do not provide a bespoke Pony Club liability policy.
