Horse Owners Have Peace of Mind With Taylor Harris Insurance Services, Horse Insurance

Wellington, FL – February 5, 2007 – When Mike Lewis spoke with a Taylor Harris Insurance Services Inc. agent on a Thursday afternoon and made a verbal agreement regarding one of his horses, he didn’t think much of it. But the following Tuesday, that very horse died.

“I called Brian Lenehan, who was the agent. He said, ‘How much do you want?’ He said, ‘OK, you’re insured,’” Lewis explained. “On Tuesday, the horse flipped over, hit his head on a rock and died. Right on the spot. I got a check in the mail from Taylor Harris – I had never given them a penny – Friday of that week. The fact of the matter was that I had never given Taylor Harris a penny. I felt an obligation, so I paid the premium, but that was the least I could do.”

He continued, “That really started us on our career with the horses because, with the proceeds from that insurance settlement, we went to Scott Stewart’s place and bought a horse named Preferred. He won just about everything. You can see readily why I have a great allegiance to Taylor Harris. I wouldn’t think about going anywhere else.”

The Lewis’s have been insured through Taylor Harris for about 10 years, and he noted that when he needs something from the agency, all it takes in a simple phone call to the main office or his agent will contact him directly.

“I really don’t need much, but I just call the home office or they call me if we have to change something. I will say that Taylor Harris has a lot of good people. They are very trustworthy, and I don’t have to worry. They are very astute, and they process claims whenever you have them,” he added.

As far as Lewis’ opinion is concerned about having a horse insured, he said it depends on the ability of the owner to be able to absorb the loss or the cost of medical bills.

“The very definition of insurance, about anything – horses, people, properties – you insure yourself against the loss you cannot otherwise sustain,” he explained. “If you have enough money to pay for them or pay to replace them, then you don’t need insurance. Would I recommend that people have horse insurance? It depends completely on their situation. I just say that I believe I’m in a category where it behooves me to have horse insurance. It’s worth it if anything happens. And when you have Taylor Harris, you have peace of mind.”
