Horse and Farm Ownership is a Lifestyle
WE LIVE IT. WE GET IT. WE’RE HERE TO HELP.

Mary Phelps is uniquely qualified to guide you in selecting the right insurance coverage for your farm, business and horses. A lifelong equestrian, equine photographer and journalist, founder and COO of Horsesdaily.com, Mary has travelled the world of equestrian sport for over 35 years. She is also a competitor at the Intermediate level in Combined Driving, and a farm owner in Kentucky and Florida.

“I know first hand the day to day highs and lows of what it takes to do all that we do as horsemen, competitors, and property owners,” adds Phelps. “Most of the people on our Markel team are too, and that is an important part of how we stand out when it comes to getting the protection and service you need.”

Thank you for your interest in our equine insurance coverages. Our office has been providing quality services in the equestrian insurance business for over 25 years. I represent Markel Insurance Company, providing uninterrupted insurance coverages for the equine world for over 50 years. Our rates are competitive, and service and coverages superior. We pride ourselves in the personal contact we have with our clients, and our extensive knowledge, love of horses and longtime participation in the equine industry. On the scene, at the shows and in the barns, we know horses and understand your needs. We specialize in insuring sport horses for competition and breeding in dressage, showjumping and three-day event. We also offer a full range of farm and liability insurance for professionals in these fields.
In addition to the time and work you invest in owning horses and livestock, you have a substantial financial investment which needs the right protection from a company that knows horses.

Our web site is here to help inform and communicate with our many clients and friends.
