looking for equine liability insurance

We are planning to starting a lesson program and we need liability insurance to do so. We have done this before for another farm but have our own property and horses now. There seem to be several companies that offer it but we want to make sure that we go with the right company and the right coverages. Any information, comments, and/or advice is appreciated.

I am with Ohio Casualty after years with another company. I have been very pleased with them and their rates are reasonable for the coverage I have. I have a limited lesson program but keep my expense down by not having stallions or horse shows on the property. My insurance as an instructor is a separate policy so I am covered both personally and as a business in case of an accident. My instructor's coverage also stays no matter where I am teaching or doing a clinic.

Pretty sure travelers does. Farm Burea ( screrw it I cant even get close enough for spell check to figure it out stoopid stoopid word) Farm BEEE URRRRR OOOO,,
any way they have a great farm policy which includes equine liability, but Only if you dont charge money, They may sell a rider though. I would check there first

Thank you for this information!
snootyfox - I checked out Ohio Casualty but I think they only offer those coverages in Ohio and Kentucky (that's what it said online). I left a message for them anyways but haven't heard back.
joe4d - We have Farm Burau but we didn't think that they would offer the type of insurance we need. We will contact them tomorrow.

Farm Bureau or Markel.
Be warned, Markel has a mile long application, but I do believe their insurance coverage is absolutely worth it!
