Riding instructors and horse trainers need commercial equine liability insurance too.

When teaching a student lesson and/or training horses, your business could be the target of a lawsuit. Money isn’t the only thing that’s at stake. Your reputation is on the line, too.

You need coverage designed specifically for riding instructors, trainers and clinicians. Why? Think of it this way: your business revolves around animals that can kick or spook coming in contact with students, staff, and employees who can fall off or get injured.

It takes an expert to figure out the right kind of coverage for you. And Markel has over 50 years of expertise insuring horses and horse-related businesses.

Markel is also the Official Insurance Supplier of The American Riding Instructors Association (ARIA).
