Members Named Perils (MNP) Coverage

Disasters can be unexpected and sudden; is your horse covered? 

MNP insures any horse(s) you own in case of death resulting from a named peril in the policy, some of which are fire, lightning, collision/overturn of a conveyance in which your hose is being transported, attack by a dog or wild animal, windstorm, drowning, collapse of building, and more. 

The optional MNP can be added to your existing membership for only $22.00! Simply log in and select "Add Insurance to Existing Alberta Equestrian Federation Membership" or give us a call at the office (1-877-463-6233 or 403-253-4411).

For more information on this coverage or any of the other optional coverages which can be added to your AEF Membership, check out the Optional Insurance, Capri Summary of Insurance or call Capri Insurance Equine Department directly at 1-800-670-1877.
