Mine only needs a vet check for medical and loss of use. For the basic mortality they don't need anything. Usually they have a vet sign off that the horse hasn't coliced in the last 12 months. For loss of use they require xrays and everything. Every company is different though. I'd call a insurance person and talk one on one about the policy. Don't sign up online for anything IMHO.
