Equine Insurance

We Know Equine Property Insurance

If your property has outbuildings, stabling, an arena or gallops or you operate an equestrian business from your home, you should be aware that a conventional home insurance policy may not be suitable for your needs.

Here at Lycetts, we understand that it is impossible for you to separate your home life from your equestrian interests; your hobby and your business is one and the same. Therefore, we have created an equine property insurance policy which is designed specifically to suit you.


In addition to the house, staff accommodation and yard buildings, you can add your business contents to this policy haylage, bedding, feed, tack and machinery, such as horse walkers, can be listed individually on the policy. Our success is due to the personal replationships that we have with many of our clients and we prefer to meet them at their property wherever possible.

How to claim equine property insurance.

In the event of an equine property-related claim, please follow these guidelines:


  • Report immediately to the police any theft or loss and obtain a crime reference report.
  • Secure or make safe the property immediately.
  • Report the claim to Lycetts within 30 days to enable the claim to be lodged with the insurer.
  • Losses over £2,000 are usually handled by a loss adjuster or the insurer’s own claims inspectors.
  • Two estimates are required for any works or replacement items.
  • It is useful to keep a record of receipts / valuations / photographs for fine art and valuables.
  • Claims are settled at the insurer’s option either by replacement, reinstatement, repair or payment.
