Brookhurst Risk Solutions – Equine Insurance

I believe it was a recent follower on Twitter that made me aware of Brookhurst Risk Solutions.  Founded by Laura Upton, this is an equestrian insurance company.  They also provide commercial insurance, but of course it’s the horse part that interests me!

It’s always good to know about horse businesses that are run by horse people.  Laura is a horse owner and an equestrian insurance specialist, making her the sort of person you’d want to ask about insuring your own horse.  It could be that you have horses as a business, a hobby or as an investment.  Either way, there are times when they need to be insured and it’s great to know you can go through someone who knows horses.

What interests me in particular with this business is how it came about.  As a keen amateur rider, Laura is noted to compete in various horse disciplines, but mainly in Showjumping.  As it says on the website:

“With an expansive knowledge of Rural businesses and working in Insurance for nearly 20 years, Laura decided to follow her hobby with her business acumen, to establish Brookhurst Risk Solutions.”

I love this!  It’s a given that I tend to enjoy horse books more when they’re written by people in the know – and that this is what I try to do with my novels, too.  I love to see how a horse passion and other skills can be combined to create a unique, successful business.

So in what area might you be looking for insurance for a horse?  Various options are listed on their website:

  • Horse and Pony Insurance with Vets fees up to £10,000
  • Bloodstock and Stud Insurance
  • Livery, Riding Schools and Farms Insurance
  • Freelance Grooms and Instructors Liability Insurance
  • Horsebox and Trailer Insurance with Breakdown Cover
  • Personal Accident for Riders, Grooms and yard owners

That’s quite a list!  If you have insurance needs with regards to your horses, riding or career, then be sure to look into it!  Otherwise, if you have a passion for horses and knowledge in working in insurance, then perhaps a career change in the future could lead to a business that combines the two?
