  • Recommend Markel to all of our equine friends

    "Markel has always been very helpful and easy to work with. Last January, we lost a horse to colic. We have never filed a claim on any kind of insurance. The claims department walked us through the process and were very clear and concise in explaining what we needed to do and the documentation needed. The best part, though, was how compassionate the representatives were knowing we had just lost something very dear to us. We have recommended Markel to many of our equine friends."

  • Professional company with great claims service

    "I purchased my insurance with Markel in October and he was euthanized in March due to an accident. Markel was very professional and not only paid the insurance on the horse but also paid for the vet visit for the time of his loss and they reimbursed me the unused portion of the policy. This is remarkable, in my opinion, for a horse that was insured less than a year. I now have two other horses insured with Markel."

  • All of my friends recommended Markel

    "Bottom line, when we purchased our first horse, we were completely new to horse ownership and insurance. In search of equine colic and medical insurance, I asked people who spent their lives in the equestrian world-- everyone one of them recommended Markel. When I engaged Markel for my horse, I found they made it very easy to address and pay for insurance needs."

  • Fast and fair claim handling

    "We have been very pleased with Markel. Every person I have ever talked to has been helpful and did everything possible to make sure what I needed was completed quickly. We had an unfortunate situation where my daughter's mare passed away and Markel was sympathetic and made sure we did not have any other issues to deal with. I will always have my horses insured with Markel and tell everyone how great they are."
