Horses are your passion. Protecting them is ours.

Markel has been a Corporate Partner of the Ohio Quarter Horse Association (OQHA) for 6 years. We are excited to partner with OQHA and Professional Auction Services to provide 24-hour Fall of the Hammer mortality coverage for horses purchased at the online Congress Super Sale.

Please note, mortality coverage will cease 24 hours after the end of the sale. We must hear from you before the coverage expires and horses in transit are not insurable. To continue coverage, apply only here or contact one of our Western Team Horse Insurance Specialists. (Certain limitations apply. Embryos/unborn foals are not eligible.)
