Equestrian Liability Insurance Coverage in BC
Some horse owners don’t realize the various emotional and financial risks involved with owning one or more of these magnificent animals. Whether you own horses for pleasure, supply board, train, breed, or offer riding lessons, there are hazards and perils associated with this ownership. These perils can occur in the form of accidents, injury, negligence, or acts of nature.
In order to protect yourself, your property, and your horses, an equine insurance package is a definite must. By law, a horse owner is responsible for any property damage, injury or accident that their horse may cause. This means that an injured party has the right to seek monetary compensation from you as a result of your horse’s actions. Equine insurance will protect you and your family from financial losses; not many people can afford to hand over thousands of dollars out of pocket. Such instances would include if your horse were to bite, kick, throw a rider, or if your horse manages to escape onto a road and cause an automobile accident. Additionally, you can be held liable if something happens to someone elses horse that is under your care.
As well as providing protection for liability issues, equine insurance will protect the financial investment that you have put into your horses. If your horse has been injured or becomes sick, coverage is available to help with the unexpected medical expenses that may be incurred.
To many, a farm is a home, a sanctuary, and a way of life. Purchasing Westland’s Equestrian Insurance Package will ensure that your investments are properly taken care of. We protect not only your horses, but also any equipment necessary for the health, upkeep, and protection of these animals.
