2017 is shaping up to be an exciting year for LEGIS, our clients, and our sponsored riders! Read on to find out what we’ve been up to.

FEI World Cup Jumping Finals

The U.S.A. hosted the World Cup Finals for Show Jumping and Dressage, and two LEGIS insured horses were part of the impressive American contingent. Jamie Barge and her Luebbo and our own LEGIS Touch the Sun and Jenni McAllister made the trek to Omaha, and Larry and Marnye Langer were on hand to cheer from them and of course McLain Ward and HH Azure who won the whole thing! The LEGIS Team cheered from afar.

Congratulations to Jamie on an impressive finish in the Saturday night Winning Round Grand Prix.

The Winner’s Circle

Our LEGIS Sponsored Riders are having a great year, and we want to welcome our newest sponsored rider, Cecily Hayes who rides in Junior Hunters, medals, and jumpers. Cecily finished fifth at the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) Nationals in the Open Equitation Championship. 

Another junior rider, Alyce Bittar competed in her first grand prix jumping event—the $10,000 S & S Bank Card Systems Flintridge Grand Prix—and placed fifth on Star Girl B, sixth on Lara Croft B, and ninth on Beirut B. Then the next weekend, she followed it up with a showing in the $15,000 Flintridge Huntington Hospital Grand Prix and finished 8th, 9th and 10th. "The experience was amazing, and my horses were spectacular," Alyce says. "They tried so hard for me and made my first grands prix amazing."

LEGIS client Genny Miller won two firsts and a fourth in the Level 1 Western Pleasure on Only Making Change (Jacque Huss, owner), at the Kaniksu Classic.

Insurance Buzz: Why a Horse Expert is Beneficial

Insurance is like many other fields: it is broad and has many areas of specialty. Horse facilities come in many shapes and sizes, and owners and managers of facilities should consider an insurance agent with equine experience.

Agents steeped in the equestrian field can better assess the insurance needs of clients with horses and horse-related businesses, and those agents have access to insurance carriers that specialize in writing insurance for equestrian facilities – large and small – as well as horse shows, clubs, and other horse related activities.

Why does this matter? We have seen clients who are insured under a wedding/party planner form. If there was a loss, in all likelihood the claims investigator would not cover the claim since the original coverage was written for an inappropriate category. In other cases, agents without experience in equestrian matters can miss crucial coverages an insurance policy should contain.

Sometimes important coverages are omitted because the agent did not have the industry specific experience to suggest the coverage to the client. For example, we had a client with a boarding stable that was rated as a race horse training facility instead of the more appropriate and correct show, pleasure, and riding horse category. This client had been unnecessarily paying higher premiums because the original client did not understand the nuances in boarding operations.

Using an insurance agency with little equestrian knowledge is like going to a foot doctor when your elbow hurts.

Running a facility is challenging enough. Make sure you are working with an insurance agency that has the scope and experience to understand your business and make sure you have appropriate coverage at a fair price.
