Is it Time to Review Your Farm and Liability Coverage? We Make it Easy!

2016 was a banner year for our agency with a large growth in writing farm and liability coverage. As an experienced horse farm agent knowledgeable about the horse industry and the types of operations in our sport we are supported by our underwriting team at Markel. We can review your coverages and provide you with, in most cases, a competitive quote, added value and service. In the past, an application for a farm owner and/or liability account to those busy with the daily responsibilities of running an equine operation was a daunting task, but we have streamlined the process and are available to do the work for you, given some basic information. In these challenging economic times, insurance companies have to be competitive to grow their business.

DressageDaily's Mary Phelps is a Markel Equine Insurance Specialist. Together with CSR Tracey Scharf we are here to help manage all your equine , farm, and liability needs.

You might be pleasantly surprised as the clients we have worked with this year were, at how we can save you money and give added value to your farm and liability protection. With our “Quick Quote” process, just 15 minutes of your time can often be all that is required to provide you with a quote. Is 15 minutes worth it to see what we can do to help you save money and assure you, you have the protection you need? Call us.

I own a farm myself, compete in Combined Driving, and travel to many shows in the regions I represent, mainly in the Central United States. I deal with all aspects of the business; showing, veterinary and farrier expenses, travel and managing a business, so I know in a small way what many of my clients deal with on a daily basis. And as our readers know, have provided DressageDaily.com news and information since 1997 to our community.

Tracey Scharf my administrative assistant and licensed Customer Sales Representative (CSR) is available and has my back as I travel to shows and events. In most cases Tracey is real and human voice on the other end of the phone line, and stays in touch with e-mail and messages even on her days off. If she does not have the answer for you, our support team at Markel is close at hand to answer any questions you might have.

We have a good working knowledge of your type of operation, and know exactly what information the insurance company will require. We will be able to present your operation fairly and accurately so the company can rate your farm based on your actual exposures, not over or under-inflated numbers that would result in unrealistic premium results. It’s important to use a company that is familiar with horse related operations so there’s understanding and agreement between agent and company and quotes are accurate, not inflated.

I am very proud to be one of the Equine Insurance Specialists selected by Markel to represent them, and am prepared to provide you with the best quote possible for your business, with their full support. 

Send us an e-mail or give us a call, if you are interested, and let’s get the process started.
