Equestrian Industry To Re-Open

Following the latest Government announcement, and further clarification from the BHS, the equestrian industry looks set to re-open


Are you an instructor heading back to work?

As many equestrian instructors, coaches and freelancers look to return to work this month there are many issues to consider.  Effective insurance should be a key priority for those heading out to teach.  

Shearwater's riding instructor insurance is there to give you a helping hand (from a socially acceptable distance) should be subject to a claim.


Back to school

As the BHS gives the green light for riding schools to re-open, albeit with a number of limitations and strict social distancing, businesses need to ensure they have the relevant safety net in the event of a claim.

Every horse riding school is unique and offers a different business model for clients. Whatever differentiates them, public liability insurance is the most important element for all, and our team of equine specialists can talk you through every available option relevant to your institution to make sure that cover is personal to you.


Business Essentials

For businesses entering survival mode to ride out the crisis we have developed a specialist package that offers a 40% discount.

The COVID-19 Business Essentials policy offers the essential insurance elements to help you meet your legal obligations.  This policy is aimed at the leisure and hospitality industry and therefore has some application to a number of equestrian businesses, including bricks-and-mortar retail businesses.
