Tailored plans that provide complete protection for you and your passengers

Whether your mode of transport is a horsebox or trailer, it is a legal requirement to have insurance for transporting horses and ponies from A to B.

Horsebox Insurance FAQs

Do you need insurance for a horsebox?

Yes, insurance for a horsebox is a legal requirement. To enquire about a quote, you can fill in a form or speak to a member of our team on 01948 820000. We are always happy to help.

Do you need insurance for towing a horse trailer?

You are not legally required to take out separate insurance to tow a horse trailer. Unlike a horsebox, a trailer is not a motorised vehicle and therefore is not subject to the same laws. However, it is wise that you take out additional horse trailer insurance so that you are fully covered against any unforeseen events.
