The purchase of a horse represents a significant financial investment. At Markel, we are committed to providing the expertise and financial stability to protect your equine assets.


High class racing operations have been trusting us for a long time, and we are proud to partner some of the best horses in the world in their racing and breeding career.

Sport horses

The quality of our coverages is recognised by a lot of famous professionals who trust us. Our experts attend most of the major competitions in France and abroad.

Reining and western horses

Markel has been involved in Western riding for more than 50 years. We are among others, the official insurance partner of the NRHA, NRCHA and APHA. For a long time we only operated in the USA, but we are now based in Europe too.

Leisure horses

We have created a few years ago a special incentive for leisure horses, offering good and large coverages at a very competitive price, for values between 1000 € and 4 000 €.
