Let Us Help You Check Off that Box
Have you seen the sale prices horses are bringing this year? Or invoices for a colic surgery or major lameness issue? It seems that just like about everything else in this economy, the costs of horse ownership are skyrocketing.
But considering many of us have been dealing with the chaos and anxiety of life in a hopefully waning pandemic and economic uncertainty, it’s likely that most horseowners haven’t spent their time at the barn chatting with friends about all the ways our horses could become injured or ill, or heaven forbid, pass away, leaving us with a pile of a vet bills and scouring the internet for our next partner and finding the market’s eye popping prices.
I realize that is scary language, but if the last two years have taught us anything, it is to prepare for the unexpected. Don’t get me wrong, I realize that most horseowners don’t want to hang out at the barn chatting about worst case scenarios, but as in many areas of life, what you don’t know can hurt you, and putting your head in the sand is rarely a successful strategy. So, without being too morbid but in the interest of helping you protect your horses and your bank account, here are some reasons you should finally put a check mark on the box next to ‘Get Horse Insurance’ on your to-do list.
