The AEF and “CapriCMW” have been working collaboratively in service to the horse community in Alberta for some time.
Over the years, the products and services offered to members have changed dramatically – all in response to a changing landscape in the horse industry and evolving risk assessment practices we have been able to employ as specialists in this field of work.
In 2018, our insurance program includes more risk management and loss prevention education than ever before and yet – yet another insurance option designed for “members only.”
On January 1, 2018 – we launched an add-on to our existing horse insurance product (Members Name Perils) called “Emergency Life Saving Surgery.” As the name implies, the intent of coverage is to help members whose horses are having a life threatening situation that requires immediate intervention at surgical facility.
This coverage will pay (up to) $2,500 of surgical expenses incurred which, for many situations, will make a significant difference in managing the financial strain of helping the horse receive acute medical care to save its life.
For members looking for/requiring a higher limit or broader coverage for life and health, we can place up to $10,000 Major medical/surgical coverage under our “Equi-Care” horse insurance program when the life of the horse is insured under a Full Mortality policy, providing a comprehensive approach to insuring your horse.
If you would like more information about Equi-Care or any of the insurance options that you, the member, has exclusive access to as a member of the AEF – please let any of our specialized team of licensed insurance professionals know.
Insurance for horses and their people – it’s what we do!
