Life Insurance

Life Insurance for horse riders will often be accepted at normal terms. The type of horse riding that you do may need to be disclosed on your Life Insurance application, however some insurers will not require details of private hacking if that is all that you do. The insurer may wish to know how often you ride, whether this is an amateur or professional activity and if you take part in competition or show jumps.

Critical Illness Cover

Critical Illness Cover for horse riders is also often available at normal terms. Horse rider Critical Illness Insurance applications may be subject to exclusions to the Total Permanent Disability aspect of the policy. This exclusion may be applied if you are a frequent horse rider and/or take part in more hazardous aspects of the sport such as competitions and show jumps. Whilst this may not be desirable, TPD is more of an additional extra to these policies and the exclusion should not deter you from the significant benefits of the cover.
