Top tips for comparing
horse insurance for older horses

  • Check if the policy covers your horse for veterinary fees caused by illness rather than just injury

  • Try to choose a policy that covers alternative therapies which may be useful for the older horse.

  • See if death of the horse is covered and check which circumstances of death are included.

  • Get quotes from insurers who can offer you a policy tailored to your own needs and circumstances.

  • Check to see if the policy includes disposal costs, which can be expensive and can make a heartbreaking situation even harder.
