Sport horses

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.

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

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
