Buying a sports horse, how big or small its value, is always an investment. At Markel we aim to protect this with our expertise and financial stability. Numerous well known riders have given us their confidence and we are proud to accompany champions, amateur horses and ponies throughout their sporting and breeding careers.
Our experts, most of whom are riders and horse owners themselves, are present at many events, competitions and fairs. We believe in the important of personal contact and want to be at your side to give you advice and to protect your horses.
the agreed value
All Markel equine policies are done on agreed value, which means you know what you’ll get in the event of a claim (except if the horse is bought at an auction or runs in a claimer). Some of our competitors specify that you get at the best the « market value », which means you are not sure that you’ll get the insured value back.
