Horse Insurance - About the policies

Equine Insurance – About the policies Mortality, Theft &Straying

This is the base cover offered by Petplan Equine. This refers to either the death of your horse or its physical disappearance, whether by theft or straying. This covers the sum insured or market value (whichever is the lesser) should the horse pass away or have to be euthanized under humane grounds or was to be lost or stolen during the period of insurance.

Optional Extras:

Vet Fee Cover

One of the most common reasons to claim on equine insurance is for veterinary fees. Veterinary medicine can be expensive and if you do not have the means to pay an unexpected bill of up to several thousand dollars for an emergency surgery for colic, or a lameness investigation, you may be faced with the unpalatable decision of whether or not to have your horse destroyed.

Petplan Equine offers two levels of cover for Vet treatment, following an injury or illness. “Standard Cover” pays up to $10,000 in any one claim or in any one year with an excess of $200 per condition. Our “HiXS Cover” pays up to $7,000 in any one claim or in any one year with an excess of $1,000.

Permanent Loss of Use

In very basic terms this area of cover exists to protect you if your horse were to suffer an injury or illness so severe that it will never be able to participate in the activity it is insured for again.

The important thing to remember is that the disability has to be permanent and it has to prevent the horse from doing an activity that it is insured for.

Petplan Equine offers two levels of Loss of Use cover - 60% or 100%.

Disposal after Death

This covers up to $300 towards the cost to remove and dispose of your horse’s body if it dies or is humanly destroyed.

Saddlery & Tack Cover

This cover replaces or repairs saddlery & tack that has been stolen damaged or destroyed. The insured saddlery & tack must be kept in a locked tack box, vehicle or building.

Horse Float Cover

Petplan Equine offers insurance for your horse float or horse drawn vehicle. If your float or horse drawn vehicle is destroyed, stolen or damaged the cover will repair or replace  up to the sum insured or market value, whichever is the lessor.

Other Plans Available:
