With no upper age limit we are happy to insure your horse or pony even if they are over 15 years old when you take out the horse insurance policy.

We offer four different veteran horse insurance plans for older and mature horses. Each with a comprehensive list of cover with benefits including public liability, vet's fees, tack and personal accident.

Our benefits vary between the different levels of cover. We offer public liability cover up to £1.75m. This is essential as you are now liable for any damage or injury that your horse does to others regardless of whether you are negligent or not.

For many horse owners, vet fees cover is one of the most vital parts of the insurance policy. We offer vet's fees up to £6,000, giving you complete peace of mind. Cover for theft and straying is also offered up to £2,000.

Take a look at our veteran cover and choose which plan would be best for you and your horse or pony.
