Who We Are

Who We Are

KBIS was first established in 1986 as a specialist bloodstock insurance provider under the trading name of Kershaw Bloodstock Insurance Services. In 1991 the company was acquired by current owners Guy and Liz Prest,  who expanded the business to include insurance cover for the riding and competition horse. 

Over the years KBIS has grown further to include horsebox insurance, liability insurance and specialist equestrian property insurance. Despite our growth we have still maintained our focus on providing a personal and efficient service, which has helped us to become the largest independent equine insurance provider in the UK.

Our mission is to provide innovative, affordable and transparent insurance policies while delivering excellent customer service from our passionate, personal and professional team, alongside supporting the equestrian industry through sponsorship and partnerships.

Innovation – Creating new products in line with customer requirements.

Transparent – Providing clear policy terms and conditions and a straight forward claims process.

Affordable – Offering a range of cover levels to suit different budgets.

Knowledgeable – All of our team are experts in their field.

Passionate – We all have an active interest in the equestrian industry, with many of us owning and competing our own horses, allowing us to combine our hobby with our work.

The KBIS offices are based in the small Berkshire village of Peasemore in converted internal stabling. A team of thirty, (though if you count the dogs, forty!), are split across the three departments – liability and property insurance, equine insurance and horsebox insurance. As equestrian insurance is so specialist all of the staff have equine experience or are experts in their fields of insurance, ensuring that as a customer you can speak to someone who truly understands your requirements
