Yes, our Core Horse Insurance is perfect for those looking for affordable Horse Insurance, whilst still having some insurance in place should the worst happen. The vets fees cover is provided on an accidental external injury only basis, which is defined as external visible wounds caused by accidental or violent means. Choosing to cover Accidental External Injuries only, will lower your premium.
Co-insurance is where an insurance policy is shared between the Insurer and the client. Our SEIB Classic Horse Insurance offers a 20% co-insurance option, whereby in the event of a valid claim, you will be responsible for 20% of the bill plus the £165 excess, with the insurer picking up the balance. Find out more about co-insurance here.
By opting for co-insurance, you can reduce your premium.
Yes, a higher excess will reduce your premium as you are committing to pay a larger amount in the event of a claim.
This depends on which Horse Insurance policy you have with us.
Classic Horse Insurance may require a veterinary certificate. This will depend on age, value, cover you require and whether the horse has been owned and uninsured. Speak to our team for more information.
Core Horse Insurance does not require veterinary certificates.
We’re able to offer foal insurance for foals aged 30 days and over. Our foal insurance would work in the same way as our Classic horse insurance policy in that you can choose from a range of veterinary fee levels and excess options. We can also offer specific rates for foals that aren’t used for any in-hand showing.
Our Veteran Horse Insurance is tailored to provide your older horse with the cover they need. It is available for horses from fifteen years old (and younger if you wish). There’s no upper age limit on this product, and it is a package policy which covers accidental external injuries only, with an optional add-on that includes a contribution to emergency life-saving colic surgery at £1,500 max (subject to underwriters’ agreement and an excess).
Using a price comparison site to find a policy may seem worthwhile, but you probably won’t be getting the most appropriate insurance. In such a niche area, relying on sector specialists is a strong option and our specialist team are on hand to help find the best priced Horse Insurance for your needs. As we own and ride horses ourselves, we can ease any concerns you may have. We’ve been specialising in UK Horse Insurance since 1963, so you can trust that what we offer looks after your best interests.
If more than 50 years of award-winning service, a dedicated team of experts who have a moral investment in equine wellbeing isn’t enough, we also provide insurance for the equestrian industry’s biggest charity, The British Horse Society. An exceptional UK charity that demonstrably improves the lives of horses and provides expert advice for owners and riders. We’ve worked closely with the charity for many years now, and hope to continue this in the future. For more information on BHS, click here.
We are also one of only a few equestrian insurance providers that will offer colic surgery cover of up to £7,500. This means that you can rest assured that your horse will be protected should it need to have emergency colic surgery.
Our expertise and knowledge allows us to cater for a vast array of needs. When considering horse or pony insurance, there’s a lot to think about.

Whatever your requirements, trust SEIB to provide you with a thorough policy with minimal stress. If you’re unsure which of our policies best suits your needs simply give us a call and our team will be happy to advise you. Call 01708 850 000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
