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. We sponsor the 3 main reining European events which are the NRHA European Futurity, Derby et Affiliate Championship.

Our team of experts attend most , if not all the major shows in France, Europe and the USA.

The Markel difference

  • Agreed value

All Markel policies are agreed value, which gives you the reassurance of knowing the amount you would receive in the event of a loss. Many other companies' policies state that the most the company will pay is the 'fair market value or actual cash value' of the animal at the time of the loss. This gives you no guarantee that the amount the horse is insured for is the amount you will receive in the event of a claim.

  • Coverage in all Western Europe

This means you can transport your horse without having to request additional coverage for the transits.

  • Death following a surgery (even a castration until 3 year old included).
  • 400 € of post mortem fees
