Become a member and get insured

Competitive horse rider insurance. Protect yourself and the horses you love while supporting an organisation that’s promoting better welfare for horses.

Do you, like most horse owners, shudder at the thought of an unexpected vet bill cropping up? We all know that horses can be an expensive pastime. So, with the day-to-day costs of horse care constantly ongoing – and in many cases rising – the benefits of horse insurance mustn’t be underestimated.

There are lots of reasons why people take out horse insurance, but our members cite peace of mind as a priority when insuring through World Horse Welfare. From Personal Accident Insurance, Public Liability Insurance, veterinary fee cover for equine accidental external injury to insurance for under 18’s, we have your back should something go wrong.

See below a video from World Horse Welfare member, Nicolina Mackenzie whose horse had a thorn in his eye.
