Do I need insurance for my horse trailer?

I own a farm and will need to start transporting my horses. Do I need horse trailer insurance?

“If you’re going to be transporting your horses, it is recommended to have horse trailer insurance.
While your liability car insurance will cover any accidents or injuries you cause while on the road with your trailer, you’ll need a special policy if you’d like to protect it from damage, theft, or vandalism.
With some companies, this typically falls under trailer or RV insurance. Trailer insurance is insurance for a trailer that transports goods. This can be anything from food to ATVs. You may also be able to get a specialized horse trailer policy.
Most trailer policy coverages include:
If you’re unsure of what coverage you may need or what policy is right for you, you should reach out to your current insurance company. An agent will be able to help guide you through the process. If they offer trailer insurance, you can likely bundle your policies together.
You can also shop around and request quotes from various companies. Not every company offers trailer insurance, so you may need to look around before settling on a policy that’s right for you.
