NRCHA Welcomes Newest Corporate Partner - Markel Insurance Company

The National Reined Cow Horse Association has announced that Markel Insurance Company, a subsidiary of Markel Corporation based in Glen Allen, Virginia, has come on board as the newest NRCHA Corporate Partner.

Along with being the Official Equine Insurance Company of the NRCHA, Markel Insurance Company will also be the presenting sponsor of the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales, held October 2 - 4 at the Snaffle Bit Futurity in Reno, Nevada. The company will also award an NRCHA Sale Bonus. Every time someone buys a horse, they get a chance to win $500 in Markel Bonus Money. In addition to the bonus, Markel will be providing "Fall of the Hammer" coverage to NRCHA members for horses purchased at the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Horse Sales. Mortality coverage will be provided for the horse's purchase price once the hammer drops and coverage extends 24 hours after the start of each sale. Buyers will be able to continue coverage by applying online at http://www.horseinsurance.com or visiting with a Markel representative attending the sale.

Carol Rose, NRCHA Sponsorship Committee Chairman said, "We're thrilled to welcome Markel as our newest NRCHA Corporate Partner and the presenter of the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales. Markel Insurance Company is so prominent in the industry and The NRCHA Corporate Partner Family is the heart of the Association's success, and allows exhibitors at NRCHA Premiere Events to enjoy the exemplary added money and prizes that are so unique and plentiful."
