Insurance Insights
Feature Article: Your Horse Deserves Insurance
Many horse owners who contact Marshall & Sterling Insurance ask a similar question: Is my horse worth insuring?

The short answer is: Yes!

Insurance is available to horses no matter their value--between 24 hours old to more than 20 years old. Whether you received the horse as a gift, are leasing him for the summer circuit or purchased one overseas, there are many insurance options available. 

Insurance companies tend to set a horse’s mortality value based on your financial interest in the horse. This means that if you purchased a horse for $5,000 last week, then the company will agree to insure the horse for up to $5,000. If a horse was gifted to you, individual companies have different requirement guidelines for the maximum value to insure for mortality. If you leased a horse, generally within the lease agreement there's a set amount for which the owners would want the horse to be insured.

And, with today’s demand, there are also medical options available as add-ons to the base mortality policy. That way, you aren’t paying the entire vet bill out of pocket.

If you'd like more information about insuring your horse, or are interested in a free quote, please give us a call at (800) 836-3046, or visit our website to fill out our quote page.

Client Spotlight
Danny Robertshaw & Ron Danta
Trainers Danny Robertshaw and Ron Danta, own and operate Beaver River Farm in Camden, South Carolina. In addition to their thriving show stable, they're well known for establishing Danny and Ron's Rescue, a non-profit organization that has now adopted out more than 11,000 abandoned, abused and homeless dogs to loving homes.

Danny & Ron’s Rescue is unique. Because an abused or neglected dog can only recover and learn to trust again when it's in a loving home, Danny and Ron have turned their own house into the ultimate safe haven. There, they personally care for injured and abused animals until they're ready for adoption.

Their award-winning documentary, "Life in the Doghouse," has now been released on Netflix and tells their inspiring story, which has grown and evolved since 2005 when they rescued 600 dogs in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
