The British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) has created two new guides to help horse vets and their clients understand the equine insurance industry.

New insurance guidance from BEVABEVA junior vice president Andrew Harrison said: “Whether a vet or a horse owner, understanding equine insurance can be intimidating for the best of us. The new guides should make it easier for you and your clients to understand the finer points of policies, premiums and claim protocols.” 

The Veterinary Surgeon’s guide to riding and sport horse insurance provides general guidelines to help vets understand the requirements and issues relating to equine insurance and explains the three main types of insurance cover available – veterinary fees, death and permanent loss of use – as well as insurance recommendations for pre-purchase and pre-insurance vetting. It also includes a glossary of insurance terminology, which BEVA claims to be an “indispensable jargon-buster”.

The owner guide, The BEVA leisure and sports horse Insurance Guide for horse owners is a practical handout for clients about to embark on taking out insurance. It covers the frequently asked questions relating to vets fees and death, including when and how to insure, the importance of pre-purchase vetting, exclusions and permanent loss of use.
