Mortality

Full Mortality- Mortality Insurance is a “life insurance” policy for your horse, sale with the owner of the horse the beneficiary.

There are 2 types of this coverage.  1) Specified Perils and 2) All Risk or Full Mortality Coverage

Specified Perils (Fire, Lightning, Transportation, and Windstorm) coverage starts as soon as coverage is bound.  An examination of the horse is not required. It does NOT cover the most frequent causes of death – colic, other sicknesses, diseases or injuries.

Full Mortality coverage provides coverage against death from all risks, subject to exclusions, occurring during the policy period.

For horses with values over US $50,000, this coverage cannot begin without an acceptable vet certificate, as deemed by the Insurance Carrier.  Horses under that amount would need a signed Statement of Health from the principle caregiver of the horse.

For horses bought at public auction and bound by the carrier for “Fall of the Hammer”, a vet exam is not needed.  Reason being that Underwriters feel that the owners have already done a “pre-purchase” exam of the horse at the sale, which generally is more detailed than a standard insurance exam.

These policies are an annual policies, but can be written for a longer period should the Underwriter deem it necessary.

Other coverages available include, but are not limited to:

Prospective Foal
Stallion Availability
Stallion Permanent Disability
NG Season Conversion
Transit
First Season Infertility
Loss of Use
