    How can we help?

    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.

    The service both at application and at time of claim with HQ Insurance is next level and we couldn’t recommend them highly enough. When you add in just how good their policy is in comparison to the competition, then you would be MAD to go anywhere else. HQ is that far in front, it’s no competition.

    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.
