Insurance…straight from the horses mouth.
April 6, 2016

Welcome to our blog!  Our objective is to post information about risk management and insurance related to horses and equine activity for everyone’s benefit.

That said, let me tell you about myself and how I got to where we are today.

You may have previously read my articles regarding insurance over several years in a variety of publications or heard me speaking at one of hundreds of Q and A sessions across Canada..

You may not know that I have been involved in the horse industry for more than 40 years – riding, training, managing facilities, competing, teaching, judging, horse show organizing. I seem to have seen just about all of it – and for the last 24 years I have been a dedicated insurance broker specializing in the development and delivery of insurance products and services across Canada – all related to horses.

Drawing on these years of interacting with horses and their people across Canada there is no doubt in my mind that the basic needs of the equine community are the same no matter where the horses are. We all thirst for information on ways to deal with life with horses and the best information comes from others who have been there, done that.

I am hopeful that over time I can share solid, consistent and non-partisan information about many insurance related topics including:

  1.  What insurance is (and what it is not)
  2.  How you can use insurance to your advantage
  3. How to avoid duplication in coverage
  4. What type of insurance you ‘really need’ for you and your horse

This great thing about this site and blogging in general is that all of us get to have a conversation and with that all said, I really hope to hear from you with questions and or comments.

Thanks for checking us out.
