Equine Insurance in Pilot Mountain NC & Mount Airy NC
Live to Ride.
Owning horses can be rewarding, but it can also present liability exposures. If your horse causes bodily injury or property damage to someone, your homeowners and standard farm owners insurance policies likely won’t cover such incidents. And, if you own horses but do not operate a commercial horse business, private horse owner liability insurance can protect you against legal claims either on or off your premises. The bottom line is if your horse will ever come into contact with people, equine coverage can protect your investment.
