Equine Insurance in Pennsylvania
If horses are a part of your business, you need a commercial equine liability policy, even if you have other coverage that protects you against general liability exposures. Homeowners and standard farm owners insurance policies completely often exclude your equine business pursuits, which is why you must have this coverage despite having existing property coverage. Plus, if you own horses but do not operate a commercial horse business, private horse owner liability insurance can protect you against legal claims that your horse caused injury or property damage to someone either on or off your premises. If your horse will ever come into contact with people, it’s a good idea to purchase equine coverage.
