In the event of a claim, we deal with most horse and equipment claims in-house (except third-party liability claims).

Equine insurance tailored to your needs
Carriagehouse Insurance policies are underwritten by specialist underwriters and carefully chosen by us to give you the best cover at a competitive price with excellent security.
Our insurance covers all types of riding or driving horses and ponies. Each policy is individually designed for your particular horse(s) and equipment, depending on your horse’s value, age and use. Whilst our online quotation service allows you to obtain an instant quote for your horse, we do have alternatives that we would be happy to discuss with you.
In addition, we also offer insurance for horse trailers, carriages (including use for weddings and competitions), harnesses and saddlery, as well as employers’ liability.
For high-value or high-level competition horses, we can provide quotes on an individual basis.
We can cover foals from 30 days of age and can also offer cover for Western Europe if you travel abroad to compete. With regard to claims, we do our best to guarantee the settlement of your claim within a maximum of five working days after receipt of all appropriate claims papers and veterinary information. Third Party Liability claims however do take longer due to their complex nature.
