Animal Clubs, Associations & Special Events

Designed to protect clubs and associations from third party claims.

The pet industry is big business with millions of dog and horse owners in the United States.


As an animal club owner, liability insurance is essential to keep lawsuits and claims from taking a bite out of business.  Accidents involving injury to spectators or participants can happen during club activities, meetings or clinics leading to substantial claims.  Bad circumstances leading to damaging allegations can happen to good volunteers and club members.

Equisure
, part of the Amwins Underwriting division, is an innovative leader in developing products unique to exposures associated with animal clubs and associations.  For more than 30 years, we’ve created affordable coverage giving pet club members peace of mind by protecting their passion.  With extensive experience handling this type of business, we provide tailor-made insurance products for trainers, competitors, associations, and their affiliates.
