Protecting your horse is important so we recommend getting insurance for your horse. Other than providing your horse with the best possible care, getting insurance will allow you to protect your asset. As horses can become prone to leg/joint injuries, it would be minimize the financial impact. We do not recommend a pet insurer, however a good place to start would be at Petplans Australia where you can easily compare insurance prices, coverage, features and more. There are quite a few horse insurers such as hq insurance, affinity equine, logans , petplan and more. The basic equine insurance policy typically covers for mortality, theft & straying, however additional benefits include vet cover, permenent loss of use, disposal after death, saddlery & tack cover and horse float cover.
