As an equine insurer, we realise that the needs of veteran horses and their owners are different, which is why we offer veteran horse cover specifically for animals aged 20 years or over.

Sometimes the type of cover is more important than the price. By talking to us you can find out what is covered by our veteran horse insurance to ensure it's right for you.
