Understanding Your Insurance Policy

August 2017

It is probably safe to assume that horse owners have insurance policies which are neatly filed away in a drawer with the hope that they will never need them. At the very least (before filing it), one should check the policy Declarations page for accuracy. Does it clearly reflect the coverage requested? Are there any exclusions? Keep in mind that the policy is a legal contract. Thus it is important to understand the basics and to be familiar with the rights and duties of each party to the “insuring agreement”. Compliance with policy “conditions” is especially important. For example, a common fault is the failure to report an incident or loss in a timely manner which will put your claim in jeopardy. The last thing your agent wants is to have you experience a loss and not be compensated.

As one of the country’s oldest equine insurance agencies, licensed in 42 states, Blue Bridle is especially well positioned to provide a variety of options for those seeking insurance protection.

Whether it’s your horse, your equine liability for horse shows, clinics, clubs, instructors, trainers or boarding or your farm (when eligible), you can count on the Blue Bridle Team to put your best interests first.
