Farrier insurance can provide the coverage you need.

Your business is unique. Just like a horse needs a good shoe for protection, you need customizable and affordable farrier insurance for business protection. 

Markel’s farrier insurance can help you get back on your feet if something goes wrong. Our farrier insurance program can provide coverage for you on or off your premises with a broad range of coverages designed just for farriers. We even offer a customizable package policy to include your home and farrier rig.

Why is insurance for farriers important?

As a farrier, you are responsible for your business activities. Without proper insurance coverage, a lawsuit could be the end of your business. That’s why you need farrier insurance. It’s designed to help you protect yourself, your assets and your farrier business.
