The BEVA Leisure & Sports Horse Insurance Guide

The British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) has introduced a new guide produced in partnership with leading equine insurance providers to help horse owners get a better understanding of equine insurance.

With up to 25% of insured horses having a claim in any one year, vet fees insurance is a sensible way to budget for unexpected healthcare costs.

The “BEVA leisure and sports horse insurance guide” provides valuable information for those about to purchase a new policy, or horse owners about to make a claim.

It covers FAQs relating to vets fees and death, including when and how to insure, the importance of pre-purchase vetting, types of policy available, exclusions, referrals and permanent loss of use.

BEVA has also introduced a companion guide for vets. The “Veterinary Surgeon’s guide to riding and sport horse insurance” provides general guidelines to help your vet understand the requirements and issues relating to equine insurance.

Andrew Harrison, junior vice president of BEVA, says: “Whether a vet or a horse owner, understanding equine insurance can be intimidating for the best of us. The new guide should make it much easier for owners to understand the finer points of policies, premiums and claim protocols.”
