Private Horse Owner's Protection

If you own horses and do not operate a commercial horse business, Private Horse Owner's Liability protects you against claims when your horse causes bodily injury or property damage to someone else, either on or off your premises. If your horse is exposed to people, you need this type of protection.

As a horse owner this is the most important protection you can purchase.
