    I wouldn't disclose the amount you spent on the horse. It is none of your barn owner's business, and if they need it for insurance, then you can contact the insurance company directly and inform them.

    As for the second question, it's pretty standard. Say they can't get a hold of you and your horse requires emergency vet care - you might sue them if they got vet care on your horse if they don't have your written authorization, so this is a way for them to treat a horse if you are unable to be contacted.
    **WARNING - if your horse is insured, make sure your barn owner/manager (better, both) knows which company, and who to call to let that company know that the vet is being called for the horse before the vet sees the horse, otherwise the company can refuse to compensate for the claim. The BIG one is for mortality.

    Thanks everyone. They do require that everyone has insurance on their horses there and they offer it to us if our home owner company doesn't. So maybe that's why? I dunno. They have a $1 million insurance policy there.

    What is a good amount to say for the emergency if we're not there?

    If your horse is injured, how much money can you and are you willing to scrape up? You can include savings, credit cards, and loans in the amount (as long as you know you can access them!) or maybe even work out a payment plan with your vet if something majour happens.

    I'm not sure about your first question, but for the second one: If you are so in love with him, would you do anything to get him healthy again if he got hurt? If so, I would do how much you can afford. Also, you may want to check for horse insurance prices with your vet because there is a wide range of prices, and it is different everywhere. I have never owned a horse though...
