Benefits of Specialist Horsebox Breakdown Cover

Shearwater Insurance - 3.5t horsebox insurance

Breaking down can be a stressful situation at the best of times, but breaking down with horses on board becomes even more stressful and perilous.  Having a specialist horsebox breakdown policy can provide the essential back up you need in times of strife. 

At Shearwater we'll only provide cover from market leaders Equine Rescue Services.  Here we discuss a number of key benefits you can expect.


Roadside Assistance

It seems like an obvious place to start.  If you breakdown anywhere within the UK, the Equine Rescue Services team will assist you at the side of the road and support you to get back on the road as soon as possible.

Roadside Recovery

In the unfortunate event that your vehicle cannot be repaired roadside, Equine Rescue Services will recover you, your vehicle, your horses and your passengers to a destination of your choice.  Our priority is keeping you safe and not leaving you stranded in a perilous location.

Home Start

Not all issues happen whilst on the move and sometimes you need a little help to get moving from home.  Our policies provide support for at home breakdowns - including the winter favourite of a flat battery, where the Equine Rescue Services team will either get you moving again or recover the vehicle to a local repairer.

Emergency Accommodation

If you're more than 50 miles away from home and your vehicle can't be repaired the same day and Equine Rescue Services can't get you to your onward destination, £250 can be provided for emergency overnight accommodation for both horse and rider/passengers.

Replacement Driver

Should you suffer a fall or injury whilst out competing/riding and are certified as medically unfit to drive, a replacement driver can be provided to drive your vehicle home.  The cost of which is covered by our comprehensive breakdown policies.


Don't delay and secure your breakdown cover today.  BIG savings are to be had when combining breakdown cover with our specialist horsebox insurance.  Both policies are also available for trailers.  For instant pricing on horsebox insurance click here, and for instant pricing on our specialist horsebox breakdown click here.
