UK Horse Owners Prefer to be Covered

Its now official, the UK is in a recession, which means many horse owners will be tightening the purse strings to cope with the costs of owning a horse. One of the ongoing costs of horse ownership is equine insurance, so does this mean that horse owners in the UK are leaving their horses un-insured to save on costs?

According to Equine Compare research undertaken during December 2008, over 75% of the horse owners interviewed have their horse fully insured. In addition to this large percentage, a further 10% took out basic horse insurance where vets fees weren't covered but factors such as public liability was included. Only 15% of the horse owners didn't have any horse insurance, with 9% of those having money saved for emergencies instead of taking out equine insurance.

Take a look at and compare the Equine Insurance companies offering, Veteran Horse Insurance, Horse Insurance, Horse Trailer Insurance and Horse Rider Insurance on
