The insurance thousands of horse owners have counted on for decades, Markel’s All Risk Mortality just got easier and more affordable. Coming Soon in 2011, some State approvals are pending.

Making it Easy

  • We’ve expanded our Hassle Free Mortality* program to horses valued up to $50,000 with no vet certificate required.
  • We have extended our Medical/Surgical coverage to foals beginning at 31 days old and horses 16, 17 and 18.
  • Most renewal policies with horses valued up to $100,000 may not be required to obtain a vet exam.

Making it More Affordable

  • Mortality rates have been reduced for several breeds, uses and values
  • Less expensive to add new coverages to your policy during the policy period.

Adding Value

  • Medical/Surgical coverage increased from 60% to 75% for diagnostic testing(s) and therapeutic(s) for non-surgical lameness conditions/injuries if they are deemed necessary by the attending veterinarian(s).
  • FREE Emergency Colic Surgery Coverage, ($2,500 limit) is now included on all eligible policies.

*Some restrictions apply. All breeds and disciplines are not eligible.
