Loss of Use Endorsement

professional horse insurance specialists

This coverage is available on some horses depending upon their use, age, value, and other factors.
It is a type of coverage that is added by endorsement to a Full Mortality Policy, and insures against financial loss to a horse owner in the event an insured horse becomes permanently incapable of fulfilling the functions for which it is used as stated in the policy.

A description of these two types follow:

Full Loss of Use

This coverage provides that in the event an insured horse becomes permanently incapable of fulfilling the designated functions for which it is used as stated in the policy, but its condition does not necessitate destruction for humane reasons, the Insured will be paid a percentage of the insured value of the disabled horse.  Limits and Policy Conditions vary from one insurance company to another.  Some exclusions apply.

Limited Loss of use (External Injury Only)

This coverage provides that in the event an insured horse becomes permanently incapable of fulfilling the functions for which it is used as stated in the policy, as a result of external, accidental and violent means, but its condition does not necessitate destruction for humane reasons, the Insured will be paid a percentage of the horse’s insured value.  Limits and Endorsement Conditions vary from one insurance company to another. Some exclusions apply.

A third type of Loss of Use Coverage insures against Stallion Infertility:

Stallion Infertility Endorsement Due to Accident, Sickness & Disease

This coveage is available on “proven” breeding stallions.  Qualification depends upon age, value and other factors.
