    My neighbour is looking to agist one horse at her house and was wondering the insurance ramifications for doing this. My other neighbour has just had an indemnity form drawn up from a solicitor - is this sufficient? I realise that there has been alot on this topic awhile backbut am wondering what the latest info is.

    im not sure of the details, i think part of it would involve what the owner of the property has got insurance (home cover) with.... such as non family members riding on property.
    Also it is wise to have individual horse insurance which is up to the owner of the horse.

    Advisable to get insurance adn to tell the agister to insure.
    No matter what a duty of care is owed to the agister, so insurance is advisable (a friend has just finsihed paying off a court order for a theif who came onto their property but broke his ankle, on a loose rock/step thing - in the garden where he had no right to be)

    I know this post is a bit old, but it's a subject I now need some advice on!!

    I have only ever kept my horses on my own property, but now have to agist one elsewhere. Do I, as an agistee (?), need to get insurance cover for my horse in case she hurts someone at the agistment centre? I have contacted one place whose number I got from previous posts and they will only cover horses who earn an income from showing etc. We only go to small shows and she isn't even broken in.

    Does anyone have any suggestions of a good insurance agency?!!
