Equine Mortality

Whether owned for pleasure or professional use, a horse is a valuable asset which requires considerable investment and care. Protection of this asset, however, can be costly and can involve more than just feeding, housing and medical attention. Should the horse cause property damage or injury, the horse owner is responsible and can be held liable for monetary compensation. Additionally, if the horse has been injured, becomes sick or dies, unexpected medical expenses may be incurred.

Equine Mortality Coverage through Burns & Wilcox provides mortality, illness or disease coverage, reimbursement of costs resulting from accidents, third party liability coverage and more. As a leading provider of wholesale insurance, the experienced professionals at Burns & Wilcox can deliver insurance solutions to help your clients protect their investment.
