From riding instructors and livery yards to stud farms, Shearwater specialise in finding insurance solutions designed to protect you and help ensure you and your business financially covered.

Taking responsibility for your livery yard

You’re liable for your premises, whatever size. Having insurance in place means that if someone is injured on your premises or their property gets damaged, you could be covered for what otherwise could be a great expense.

In receiving payment for the care of other people’s horses, you become in part responsible, and liable, for their welfare. A policy arranged by Shearwater can include the option of Livery yard liability including care, control and custody for all the horses on your premises.
