The new Equine Liability Law which took effect February 23, 2006 will affect the horse farm owners in Pennsylvania in a positive way. It will apply to any individual, group, club or business that sponsors, organizes, conducts or provides facilities for an equine activity. Some of these activities are boarding, grooming, trail riding, and most type of horse shows. One of the requirements to receive protection from this law is that two signs need to be posted at the farm. The signs need to say, “You assume the risk of equine activities pursuant to Pennsylvania Law”. The size is specific and can be acquired through the Pennsylvania Equine Council. The new law does not resolve all liability issues as the law does not apply to minors. There are many minors involved in Equine activities and this is still a large exposure for the farm owner. The farm owner should still use a release before allowing anyone to participate in these activities.

The new law does not eliminate the need for proper liability insurance. Negligent acts by farm and horse owners which cause bodily injury or property damage are best protected by the proper insurance plan. We will be able to review your needs and provide the coverage that will fit your budget.

Our Equine & Horse Farm Coverage includes:

  • Property
  • Residence and Contents
  • Barns Stables Riding Arenas
  • Tack & Supplies Hay and Grain
  • Machinery, Tractors and Equipment

  • Horse insurance is different then homeowners because the form or policy, which is regulated and authorized by the Pennsylvania State Insurance Department, has many different functions and provisions. One difference is that a homeowner policy excludes any commercial or business activity. By definition, farming, including horse farms are a business even if they are not making a profit. The reason the homeowner policy cannot provide for these activities is that it would be unfair to other people who are not involved in these activities to be part of this risk pool. Those activities like boarding horses, riding instruction and even private horse ownership entail an inherent risk that is much greater than a house on a quarter of an acre. Farms have larger acreage which from time to time have guest that are invited and trespassers that are not. The invited guest can get bit, stomped, or kicked by large livestock such as horses or cattle. Uninvited guests, which some consider trespasser can get injured while snowmobiling, hunting, or swimming in farm ponds. How can the farm owner be responsible for trespassers? We are whether it seems fair or not because it is how the courts look at bodily injury. Horses and cattle can also escape from their pasture or barn. When a 1000 pound or larger animal gets out on the road, and hit by a car, the car's damage and any bodily injury is the responsibility of the owner of the animal. Again, Livestock and horses are usually excluded from an unendorsed homeowner's policy. By the way, dog bites are the number one liability claim on homeowner policies. Many homeowner companies use a list of dogs that will make a home ineligible to insure if the owner has one of the dogs on that list. German Shepherds, Doberman Pinchers, Pit Bull, and rotweillers are a few of these dogs. A farm policy may consider these dogs more favorably as some are work dogs and are commonly found there. Tractor accidents are also a risk found on a farm. Operating tractors can be very dangerous and also are a common liability claim. Many tractors drive on public roads towing large pieces of equipment. Impatient drivers often pass in the worst locations and usually claim the farmer cut them off. The liability whether at fault or not is provided by the farm policy. Legal defense is costly. If a horse farm or crop farmer is sued the legal defense is included as part of the coverage on the policy. It is almost like have an attorney on a retainer.
