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

When teaching a student lesson and/or training horses, your business could have a claim.

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.

Figuring out the right kind of coverage isn't easy, but we can help. Markel Specialty has over 50 years of expertise insuring horses and horse-related businesses.
