Specialised Insurance Cover for

Your Cherished Horses, Dogs and Cats


In the unfortunate case of death due to disease, accident or humane euthanasia (decided by a  veterinarian surgeon), the insured amount will be paid in full.

This value is determined by age and use of the horse

A Veterinary Certificate is only necessary for horses valued over R500 000.00 (Five Hundred Thousand Rand). For values below this amount, a Declaration of Health disclosing any pre-existing conditions, if any, will need to be submitted by the Insured.
