  • Outstanding customer service

    "Your customer care is outstanding. Your employees are above most any in the world we live in today. Tragedy struck us several years ago when we lost a horse in barn fire. It was on a Sunday and our account rep answered the phone to a very emotional client and walked me through the process as to what to do next. There were 42 horses lost that cold day, and very few had insurance. The process and your care was so superior, I would never go anywhere else."

  • Excellent customer service

    "When I need a quote everyone is very helpful in getting me a quote back. Also if you have questions about a policy you get answers and not the run around. It's a pleasure to work with everyone, it makes our jobs easier. Thank you!"
