Public liability insurance for horse shows

Get cover for any accidental bodily injury to a member of the public, as well as cover for accidental damage to third party property proven to be as a result of your negligence in connection with your equestrian competition or horse show.

Public liability insurance for horse show organisers is incredibly important, as it covers you against any liability or claims made by the public in connection with your event. Accidents can happen, especially when dealing with members of the public, and should a member of the public for example slip on horse manure, or injure themselves in connection to your horse show, your business can be held liable for compensation.

Incidents involving horses and spectators are thankfully rare, but slips, trips and falls around showgrounds, beside food stalls and within crowded spectator areas are more commonplace. It’s wise to be protected. 

Our standard public liability policy offers cover for up to £10million, and for up to 20,000 visitors per event. Cover is in respect of 4 consecutive days and total visitors are calculated on the total number of persons attending throughout the entire duration of the equestrian event. We can offer cover in excess of 20,000 attendance, please either call us on 01425 470360 or continue with the quick application process and state you require higher attendance then 20,000 when asked, and we shall handle your request promptly.

Employers liability horse show insurance

Whether you employ one or more people, including stewards, volunteers and helpers, it is wise to have employer’s liability insurance in case of injury and accidents to your staff.

Employer’s liability insurance can be added to your premium to cover for up to £5 million. Cover is also in respect of 4 consecutive days for a horse show event.

Our horse show insurance and eventing policies also cover:

Event equipment insurance
This part of the policy covers you against any loss, theft or accidental damage to hired, leased or owned event equipment that you are responsible for, from the merchandise you sell to the marquees to the main showground setup.

Event cancellation insurance
Should you need to cancel your equestrian event, we can cover you for any irrecoverable costs associated with the unavoidable cancellation, abandonment or postponement.

For example should inclement weather mean it is unsafe to proceed for riders, jockeys, horses and/or spectators, then cancellation may be your only option. Further information on event cancellation insurance can be found here.
