Is Your New Dressage Partner Protected While Shipping?

Did You Know…..that if you purchase a new horse and pay a commercial shipper to ship the horse home, that you can add the value of the shipping (not to include quarantine cost if applicable) to the insured value? You have just made a huge investment, and now you need to make sure that your new addition makes it home safely. Although most commercial shippers carry insurance for the purpose of a crash, it usually carries small limits to cover each horse in the case of a death, and almost never covers medical issues that may arise. As long as your new horse has insurance in effect before it loads on a trailer or plane, the horse is covered for full Mortality & Medical/Surgical (if chosen). Accidents happen, let’s make sure your horse is protected.
