Livestock Mortality is a Life Insurance policy for your
horse, with you as a beneficiary. It is an
“All-Risk” policy, which will cover death from any
cause, subject to certain exclusions which are stated in
the policy, it would also pay you if your horse is
stolen. It would pay the actual value of the horse at the
time of the accident or illness causing its death, not
exceeding the value specified in the schedule.
The number one
question we get is usually regarding the value of your
horse. Your horse can be insured for its
fair market value, or less. Fair market value is
generally considered to be the amount you could expect to receive if you sold your horse today,
with that said, this amount will have to be agreed by
the insurance company underwriter using the Equine
Value Justification form.
The value usually starts with the price you paid for the
horse and goes from there. With a recent
purchase, the purchase price would be used (and for foals,
two times their stud fee). If you have owned the horse
for some time and it has increased in value, you have
the option to insure for more than the purchase price
(we'll ask for justification - show records, training
costs, breeding records).
Keeping your horse healthy requires good nutrition,
exercise, affection, and good medical care. Medical care
for your horse can get expensive, but
Equine Major Medical Insurance can help
defray these costs and can be added to a Mortality
policy. (Mortality coverage can be purchased on
it's own without Medical coverage or at a
discount with Medical coverage.
Medical coverage is an addition added to a Mortality
policy and as such cannot be purchased without
Mortality. (See Valuable Optional Cover Below)
