Horse Trailer Insurance

Whether you’re travelling to competitions, veterinary appointments, or simply taking a leisurely ride through the countryside, ensuring the safety and security of your equine companion is paramount. That’s where horse and trailer insurance comes in.

Horse trailers are a big investment, especially if your trailer is brand new. Unfortunately, the number of horse trailer thefts is on the increase – could you afford to replace your trailer if it were stolen? At Park Insurance, we know how much you value your investments, so we work hard to find you horse trailer insurance that gives you complete peace of mind and protection, whether you’re at home or out on the road.


What is a Horse Trailer – And Is It The Same Thing As A Horse Box?

A horse trailer is a specialised transport vehicle designed to transport horses from one location to another safely. Unlike a horsebox, which is a self-contained vehicle with living quarters for humans and horses, a horse trailer is a standalone unit towed by a separate vehicle, such as a car or truck.

Horse trailers come in various sizes and configurations, including straight-load, slant-load, and gooseneck designs, to accommodate different numbers of horses and transport requirements. Given their limited space, horse trailers tend to be more popular with people who don’t compete often, have few horses, or don’t need the space a horsebox requires.

What is Horse Trailer Insurance?

Horse trailer insurance provides comprehensive coverage for your horse trailer against a range of risks and perils, including theft, damage, accidents, and third-party liabilities. This insurance offers financial protection and peace of mind for horse owners, ensuring they can repair or replace their trailer in the event of unforeseen events or emergencies.


What are the Different Types of Horse Trailer Insurance?

#1 Comprehensive Coverage: Comprehensive horse and trailer insurance provides broad protection against a wide range of risks, including accidental damage, theft, fire, vandalism, and weather-related perils such as storms or floods.

#2 Third-Party Liability: Third-party liability coverage protects you against claims from third parties for property damage or bodily injury caused by your horse trailer. This coverage is essential for protecting your financial assets in the event of legal disputes or litigation.

#3 Towing and Breakdown Assistance: Some horse trailer insurance policies may include towing and breakdown assistance services to provide roadside assistance and support in case of mechanical breakdowns or accidents while towing your trailer.


What are the Benefits?

Financial Protection: Horse trailer insurance provides financial protection against the high costs of repairing or replacing your trailer in the event of accidental damage, theft, or vandalism.

Peace of Mind: With insurance coverage in place, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your horse trailer is protected against unforeseen risks and liabilities on the road and at home.

Legal Compliance: In some cases, insurance may be required by law or recommended by equestrian organisations or event organisers to ensure compliance with safety and insurance regulations.

Customisable Coverage: Horse and trailer insurance policies are often customisable to suit your specific needs and budget, allowing you to tailor coverage options and limits to meet your individual requirements.

What are Some Other Types of Insurance Useful for Horse Owners?

In addition to horse trailer insurance, horse owners may benefit from the following types of insurance coverage:


Horse Insurance: Equine insurance covers your horse against risks such as illness, injury, theft, or death. This insurance helps cover veterinary expenses, loss of use, and mortality costs, ensuring your horse receives the care and protection it deserves.

Public Liability Insurance: Public liability insurance protects horse owners against claims from third parties for property damage or bodily injury caused by their horse. This coverage is essential for horse owners who may interact with the public or attend equestrian events or activities.

Why are horse trailer thefts on the rise? 

Horse trailers, including horse lorries, tow trailers and motorhome trailers are incredibly vulnerable to thieves, especially when left unattended at shows. And because many horse trailers carry few (if any) distinguishing marks, it can be very easy to sell on a stolen trailer. And these trailers are worth some serious money, which makes them even more attractive to thieves. They’re also often parked in remote areas (such as farms) where there’s little or no CCTV coverage.

To protect your trailer, it’s important to take every precaution you can to deter would-be thieves, including fitting immobilisers and alarms, and ensuring your trailer is stored securely.
