Jarvis Insurance is noted for its special requirements coverage. Jarvis’ standard Equine Policy covers Mortality including Theft and Ground Transportation within the United States and Canada. Not to worry, Jarvis Insurance can write coverage on any day of the week, in virtually any country! Worldwide coverage and single air transits are available just  CONTACT US for more information about our options outside of the United States. Other elective Endorsements that can be included are: Major Medical, (surgical is included in Major Medical), Loss of Use, Surgical, Stallion Permanent Disability, Air Transit, Agreed Value and 12 Month Extension.

All representatives of Jarvis are horse enthusiasts, often riders and exhibitors of their own horses. This kind of hands-on involvement gives Jarvis the upper hand about what’s important to horsemen; it takes a horseman to understand. It’s been an integral part of the Jarvis tradition since we wrote our very first policy in 1946.

To best suit your individual needs, numerous limits and various wordings are available to choose from:


Major Medical Coverage

This endorsement added to your mortality policy will financially assist the horse owner for unforeseen and life threatening veterinary care. Several limits and wordings are available.

Surgical Coverage

Every horseman knows that emergencies risking a horse’s life call for quick thought and immediate action. It’s no time to be worrying about insurance coverage. This endorsement allows you to care for your horse effectively, comforted by the knowledge that all reasonable, necessary and customary charges by a licensed veterinarian will be covered.

Life Saving Surgerical Coverage

If your primary concern is that unfortunate event that your horse appears to be colicing and that bouncy trip in a trailer and walking around isn't remeding and surgical is the only other option this might be the best option for you. This compensates you up to 10,000 (EUR, USD, GBP) in surgical costs and reimburses you up to 50% of after care costs. 

Agreed Value

With the Agreed Value endorsement, the horseman is assured that he will receive the full amount for which his horse is insured at the time of loss.

12-Month Extension Clause

Insured horses that had an illness or injury within the policy period, coverage is extended for an additional 12-month period for the illness and/or injury for mortality coverage only.

Stallion Permanent Disability

The success of equine breeding programs is largely based on the good health and vigor of the stallions it utilizes. Stallions are the equine “calling card” of a major farm, sometimes even synonymous with farm in name and reputation.

When stallions become totally and permanently impotent, infertile, or incapable of serving mares, it is frequently a true setback for the Owner, Breeder or Syndicate Shareholder. Stallion Permanent Disability insurance protects breeders and owners regarding one of their most valuable living assets.

Prospective Foal Coverage

This insurance coverage is for unborn foals in utero at 42 days and extends through 30 days after foaling.

Embryo Transfer Unborn Foal Coverage

This insurance coverage is for your embryo transfer 42 days after being safely placed in a recipient mare. Much like prospective foal coverage, this will continue through 30 days of age after foaling.

Air Transit Coverage

The dangers involved in equine air travel include the unfortunate possibility of animals becoming uncomfortable while in route. Air Transit coverage provides the horseman with important protection in the event a horse is determined to be of danger to the safety of the aircraft, crew, passengers or cargo and must be destroyed.

Worldwide Coverage

No limits. No boundries. Coverage for your precious equine any day, in any country, at any moment. 

Cattle Insurance & Zoo Animal

C. Jarvis also offers mortality coverage for your cattle and zoo animals.

Embyro Right Coverage

Did you lease a mare and retain the right to one embyro? This protects that asset until it has been harvested. Once harvested and muture enough a Prospective Foal policy can be incepted.  Did you sell a yearling filly and retain two embyro's to continue your breeding program for the future? What happened if that filly unforunately died prior to your harvesting your embryo's. This coverage protects the monetary loss to your breeding program.
