Equestrian life insurance
It is possible in the vast majority of cases to get cover for Equestrian life insurance even though it is considered to be generally quite high risk by underwriters. You should find in circumstances where there is no competitive riding or if you ride fairly infrequently for recreation that Equestrian life insurance can be offered with no increase to your premiums. There are instances where horse riding can cause concerns for life insurance underwriting which is more relevant for competitive levels.
Some of the critical areas for underwriting Equestrian life insurance are:
- How often you take part in horse riding events
- Which type of activity you do
- Do you take part in competitions (e.g. amateur or professional)

- Sum assured (£’s)
- Term of cover (term)
- Type of policy
The other main points which will define how much you will pay for your Equestrian life insurance policy which are lifestyle based such as smoker status, height & weight and other health or medical factors.
