Strange thing about insurance is we never need it till we need it! We may be young and in good health, we buy a young horse or a new horsebox and cannot foresee any problems arising.
However, what price do you place on peace of mind?
If your horse is getting on in years, your lorry or trailer maybe isn’t as new…. It’s about finding the right cover for your needs. Here’s a few insurance companies that we feel are worth a follow-up.
