    Which one?
    Ive got a quote from PetPlan of $1400 per year to insure a $10 000 horse for 60% of purchase price.

    anything a little cheaper?

    That seems alot!! I pay just over $500 a year insured for more than 10k for the whole purchase price.. That includes high excess vet insurance with petplan.

    Yeah the high excess makes it HEAPS cheaper. We figured we could always come up with the $1000 for vet costs at any time so at least we knew once it got to that, insurance takes over.
    That does not include float, saddlery etc.

    That is not for any jumping or X-country though. That might make a difference

    have you all READ the PDS? because you are covered for a lower max with high excess then with normal...

    Section Maximum each Year Excess
    Vet’s Fees Section 3 (normal) $10,000 $ 200
    HiXS Plan High excess Vet’s Fees $ 7,000 $1000
    Vet’s Fees Veteran Plan Option B $ 3,000 $ 200

    Also note:
    "What We will not pay
    8. Any amount if the death or euthanasia of Your Horse results within:
    • 21 days of Your Horse’s cover starting; or,
    • 21 days of the date this section was added to Your insurance;
    • the dates of a temporary cover note,
    no matter where the Injury, Illness or Clinical Signs were
    noticed or happened on Your Horse’s body."
