How to get a pony insured?

Does anyone know of a good place to get insurance for a horse/pony?



Also, what are your opinions on having a pony insured? If your horse is insured and it gets hurt/dies, how does it work?



I have seen a few horses die, get put down, or get pretty seriously insured in the last few years. There are two that really stick out. One was an older show horse (pretty sure he was a TB) named Hot Shot who was struck by lightning one night during a storm. :( He was an eventer/jumper who was a NICE horse. Another was a yearling filly (welsh cross) who was attacked by a pit bull. Both were worth a good bit of money.



I know everyone is going to have their own opinion, and I want to hear them all!! I know these were both "freak" accidents, but you never know!

You could probably google "equine insurance" and your state. Its best to find a local agent. I'm sure you have some in your area. We don't insure ours, but since we have a farm policy I think we could add them as livestock if we wanted too. You should check your homeowners policy as to what type it is. You might get a better rate that way. .

I did google it, but some of them seem kind of fake...I don't keep him at home, he is boarded at a barn that does lessons and has events and stuff.

The reason I want him insured is because one or two girls are going to lease him and I'm worried...

A friend of mine used to sell equine insurance and it was a legit insurance. I'm not sure if she still does or not and her web page is down :(

I googled it again...It seems that most of the insurance policies are for someone who owns their own farm. Maybe I'm just not searching right. Can you get insurance on just an individual horse? I think I know someone who has their horses insured, but idk.

Thanks. =]

Do you have an opinion on what types of horses should be insured? I don't really think it's necessary to have my pony insured as he's not worth that much, but it makes me nervous thinking of all of the things that could happen to him.

Really expensive ones? I guess anything you can't afford to replace and need, should be insured. Mine aren't worth enough monetarily to insure. They are priceless in my heart though.

Lol. That's what I was thinking. Like race horses and Grand Prix. The ones that you pay a ****load for. Haha.
