Your complete Equestrian insurance solution specialist


Hello, and welcome to our equine page! I’m Rob McOwan and I’m delighted to tell you about our work across the equine sector.

The Equine Safety Initiative

The Equine Safety Initiative aims to highlight the importance of being adequately insured around horses. By doing so, it aims to protect riders, stable staff, farriers and all forms of riding establishments in the event of a horse-related accident. The Initiative has been developed in conjunction with equestrian governing bodies including AIRE, SJI and ISSA, along with numerous riding establishments across Ireland. We’d love you to get involved too, so please click here to find out more. 


We’re here for all your equestrian insurance needs

We provide a full range of specialist insurance solutions for everyone involved with horses, including:


Rider & Stable Staff Accident Plan

(Designed for individuals working in the equine industry)

This policy offers protection for individuals who spend their lives around horses. It’s for those who want to enjoy what they do, knowing that if an accident takes place, you’ll get money to help with your costs. The plan includes a host of features including accident and hospitalisation cover, income protection, accidental death and a series of lump-sum fracture benefits.

Personal Accident Plan

(Designed for families & hobby riders)

Our flagship plan gives you and your family wide-ranging protection from serious injury. The Premier level plan offers 21 different fracture benefits paying up to €3,000, and you can also choose an enhanced Premier Plus option to cover a further 18 serious accident benefits. All in all, the plan gives you comprehensive protection from accidental injury and with three levels of cover available within each plan, there’s sure to be an affordable option to suit every pocket.
