    I honestly can’t get over how quickly our claim was all finalised. Thanks Vaunie and HQ for making it all so simple and efficient!

    We find it extremely important to protect thoroughbred investments. Quality mares are extremely hard to replace in the current market so to have that financial assurance when a loss occurs helps us keep the level of broodmare band we require. Likewise insuring foals helps us ensure the service fee we have invested in those foals is protected.

    I have been dealing with HQ Insurance for over five years and found all the staff to be warm friendly and extremely efficient with regarding all types of horse insurance issues. When I have had the misfortune of losing one of my valuable bloodstock, their ability to attend to claims promptly and with understanding is second to none.

    Fall of the hammer insurance is an important risk mitigating undertaking for us to protect our investment and that of our clients. Post sale we deem our yearlings to be at the highest risk as many for the first time live somewhere outside of the farm they were born and grew up on, many of these locations with far greater on-farm activity than they would be accustomed to. They also interact with new people who have facilities, systems and processes different to what our yearling may be used to.

    We are one of the very few equine insurers in Australia to offer AGREED VALUE Clause on all of our policies. This means we will pay you out the sum you are insured for on the policy, unlike Fair Market Value. We pay out what you pay for, so don’t risk insuring your horse on Fair Market Value policies where you could receive less than what you insured for based on what the market tells you.

    All policies are guaranteed renewal until the horse is aged 14 years and over. This means we will renew the policy without the need of any vet certificates or health documents.

    We offer multiple cover extension options from Life Saving Surgery, Loss of Use, Prospective Foal Cover, Stallion Disability, and International Transit to suit all performance horse cover needs.

    Our Claims Management is second to none! We have a dedicated Claims Manager and a Certified Equine Surgical Specialist available for emergency consultation anytime FREE of charge. All claims under $150,000 are processed in 24hrs!

    Our brokers own horses and compete in performance horse disciplines themselves, they understand the industry and the people involved in it. We offer advice based on industry knowledge and expertise to suit your own individual needs.

    There’s good reason why we are considered the superior equine insurance broker.

    In today’s edition of The Thoroughbred Report Ausnz Caitlin Smith delved into the world of stallion breeding rights.

    Read more 👇

    www.ttrausnz.com.au/edition/2024-05-24/sharing-the-upside-unpacking-stallion-shares-and-breeding-...

    So the questions are, can breeding rights be insured? How much for? What do they cover? And how long do they last?

    - Breeding Rights can be insured by anyone who has purchased one
    - We would require a Vet Certificate including reference to the stallion’s external genitalia
    - BR policies cover mortality, theft and stallion permanent disability (unable to serve mares)
    - 12 month policies are in effect each season and can be renewed for the duration of the stallion’s working life or for as long as the BR is active

    For more information or a copy of the policy wording, please contact us on 0499937902 or email admin@hqinsurance.com.au
