Dear Nicole – I just want to thank you for the remarkable service I received from yourself and Equipagé – from the moment I called you for advice you pointed me in the right direction and settled the Critical Care Claim without me having to get involved at all – this is my second claims experience with Equipagé and I am so happy my horses are insured through you.

It is so very rare these days that a company cares so much about customer service but Equipagé has gotten it right! Well done to all concerned, your service is outstanding, with claims being processed and paid within a few days. Wish more companies could follow your example. Thank you for all your help.

Each time I post a testimonial on the Equipagé Insurance Brokers website... my heart breaks a little for those who have just lost a loved one...

This time - I write my own testimonial, and add it on here... and it breaks my heart even more... Charlie was my best. my craziest. my biggest dream, and challenge. Now he is gone and I cherish our memories.

Thank you Equipagé for being there for me, as I have seen you be there for so many clients over the years...

Hi everyone at Equipagé. Just want to say a quick thank you for everything you did for Acha Don Devaris aka Bob this year. He is doing so much better in his new yard and is loved by all. We would have lost him if it was not for all your help and effort. Thanks again.

Thank you Equipagé for paying out our claim so fast and efficiently on critical care. Herbie is very pleased to have been able to be assisted so fast for a potential life threatening Septic arthritis, seen here on the table having his joint flushed. A long recovery but without Equipagé this would not have been possible.

Thank you for updating me on the test. I suppose there is some small measure of peace in knowing that he wasn't poisoned. I'm taking it one day at a time. My body is slowly healing but the heart and soul are going to take much longer to recover, if they ever do :( Thank you so much for your call last week. It meant a lot. It helps to talk to people who actually understand the bond we can have with our horses. A woman overseas posted a heart wrenching and beautiful story on Facebook about having the privilege of owning or " being lent" a thoroughbred. It was beautiful and made so much sense to anyone who has had the honour of sharing their life with one.

Dear Nicole

I would like to thank Equipagé and all the lovely ladies working there for the exceptional service and support they have given me during the tragic loss of our little filly. Equipagé has gone the extra mile in my experience and have always paid out even for our special little filly that only lived for 6 days. It was questionable that an insurance company would cover a little filly so young and any other insurer would probably not have. The ladies at Equipagé took the time to gather the vet reports and supporting documents in order to get the favorable result on our behalf and I am very grateful.

Equipagé may not be able to prevent horses getting sick but it makes all the difference when it does happen that they understand and give the financial backing in order for us to offer the horse the full medical care required. I would never have a horse without insuring it with Equipagé as it’s just not worth the risk. We all know that hoses get sick or injured so easily and the premiums are nothing compared to the vets bill. I recommend all horse owners to insure their horses with Equipagé as I do and you will not regret it.

I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a wonderful festive season filled with love, family, friends and happiness.

Thank you for the prompt work and friendly service. If I do get a new horse I will most definitely make use of your service again. Best Service!

Dear Equipagé and the Team,

To say I have had a trying year with my horses is an understatement… However I could not have done it without the support of the Equipagé team…

Nicole and Verna have been absolute stars providing not only advice, but support in the difficult times.

Sadly my beautiful Royal Index did not make it which was absolutely devastating, however we never gave up the fight and we could not have done it without Equipagé. Furthermore my quirky Tin Tin has recently undergone a major operation in the same year as loosing my girl, and he is on the mend.

Thank you Equipagé for standing by me and my furry family in 2016!!!

Just wanted to thank you for all your assistance in this regard and for all the work put in behind the scenes in processing these claims. It has been a stressful and long drawn out time in getting Tibsy to the point of ‘on the road to recovery’. It is a relief (and thankful) to note that the financial stress was covered by the insurance ! It has been very much appreciated.

I just want to voice my absolute delight and overwhelming outstanding service that I received from Nicole at Equipagé.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for your support and dedication to Cavalo’s well-being … it was a very stressful time knowing he was ill but knowing financially he was taken care of was one less thing to worry about and I could put all my energy into caring for him and loving him back to health. He is without a doubt my soul mate in equine form 

I will not hesitate to recommend Equipagé to all my Equestrian friends!

As before (and luckily not OFTEN), I can’t tell you what a relief it is to know that when something does go wrong like this, that you guys are there to fall back on and make a treatment like this affordable and ‘painless’ from an anxiety and cash flow perspective. My horses have all been insured with you for more than 10 years now and the times I have needed you, you are so responsive and efficient, thank you again.

Dear Equipagé,

Thank you for your incredible efficiency and heart-warming caring response to my claim when my darling mare fell ill and needed immediate treatment. Your quick and unwavering service made the emotional trauma so much easier to cope with knowing I had you covering her every need. You took it all in your easy stride, spoke directly with my vet so that whilst all my focus was on her recovery, you took the details off my plate. Invaluable service.

I couldn’t have asked more from you and I am eternally grateful for your easy approachability and professionalism.

Hi Verna and Nicole,

Verna it was great seeing you again today and Nicole it was a pleasure to finally meet you. I just wanted to write you two a quick note to say a great big thank you for your help with my claims last year. I must say that I really had a tough time with both my girls getting so ill and it was such an enormous help knowing that I did not have to worry about the cost of caring for them too. The claim process was seamless and when I told both clinics that my horses were covered by Equipage no further questions were asked, they instantly got all the care they needed and I didn't even have to pay a deposit. Nicole you really made the claim process so easy and I could spend my time caring for my babies, rather than sorting out paper work and vet bills. I really appreciate all you did for us and as they say, you only know how good an insurance company is once you need to claim. After this I am assured that I have made the right choice by using Equipage as my insurers.

"Just a horse" - unknown author

From time to time, people tell me, 'lighten up, it's just a horse, ' or, 'that's a lot of money for just a horse'.   
They don't understand the distance travelled, the time spent, or the costs involved for 'just a horse.'

Some of my proudest moments have come about with 'just a horse.'
Many hours have passed and my only company was 'just a horse,' but I did not once feel slighted.
Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by 'just a horse,' and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of 'just a horse' gave me comfort and reason to overcome the dark.

Those who think it's 'just a horse,' probably also use phrases like 'just a friend,' 'just a sunrise,' or 'just a promise.' '
‘Just a horse' brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy.  'Just a horse' brings out the compassion and patience that makes me a better person.

Because of 'just a horse' I rise early, take long walks, and look longingly to the future.
So for me and folks like me, it's not 'just a horse' but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

'Just a horse' brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.

I hope that someday others have the opportunity to understand that it's not 'just a horse' but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being 'just a man.'

So the next time you hear the phrase 'just a horse,' smile.

You are one of the blessed few who understand.
