This is our standard insurance policy, insuring you against your loss in the event of the death of your horse, if it needs to be euthanased on humane grounds, and for limited theft. Our standard policy insures the horse anywhere in New Zealand and Australia. The policy does not cover pre-existing conditions. We recommend an annual policy.

Please provide any additional information that might influence an underwriter to accept this proposal or be relevant to this cover. Note: please read the Duty of Disclosure

Your Duty of Disclosure

The duty of disclosure is an important legal requirement which applies to insurance. To help you understand what this means to you, we have explained the main points below. When you apply for insurance you have a legal duty of disclosure. This means you must tell us all information you know (or could be expected to know) which would influence the judgement of a prudent underwriter whether or not to accept your application and if it is to be accepted, on what terms and at what cost. You also have this duty whenever you make a change to your insurance and when any new contract replaces that which may now be issued.

Examples of information you may need to disclose include:

  • any circumstances which could increase the risk of an insurance claim;
  • any criminal offence;
  • any cancellation, refusal to renew insurance, or imposing of special terms by another insurance company;
  • any insurance claim you have made in the past.

Examples of information you do not need to disclose include:

  • anything you have already told us, or that we should be expected to know in the ordinary course of our business;
  • anything we say you do not need to tell us;
  • anything that is common knowledge;
  • anything that reduces the risk of an insurance claim.

These examples are intended as a guide to help you understand your duty of disclosure. If you are not sure whether you need to disclose a particular piece of information, please ask.

If you fail to meet your duty of disclosure, the consequences can be serious. You may find that you never had any insurance at all. When in doubt - disclose. Please remember that all information will be treated confidentially.
