Don't Own Your Own Horse?
If you don’t own or loan your own horse but still ride regularly, we offer a range of rider insurance policies to provide you with personal accident, public liability cover and custodial liability cover.
Remember: some competitions require you to be insured for third party liability, whereas some provide a minimal liability insurance policy included in the payment of the entry fee. Often the amounts and conditions of the provided insurance are limited and you may want to carry your own comprehensive or additional liability insurance to be sure you have enough cover to keep you protected from unexpected costs.
