Equine Mortality Insurance
Horse mortality insurance, also known as equine mortality liability insurance, is a comprehensive policy that reimburses a horse owner for the death, theft and humane destruction of a covered horse.
Typically specified perils covers a horse for death including, but not limited to, the following:
- Transit risks
- Attack by wild animals
A specified perils policy does not cover a horse for death due to illness or disease.
