Many thanks again for your superb service and genuine care!

From: Dr Dave Kloeck
Thank you so very much for everything!

I just wanted to also mention that I am overly impressed with all my dealings with Equipage and your team. Everything from the beginning of getting a quotation, through to the payment and claims process has been a very professional and impressive experience.

Thank you for making this so much much easier and truly if I can recommend anybody to get cover for their horses I would not even think twice about who is leading the pack in the equine cover department!

So a big thank you to you and the team. 

I cannot express how grateful I am for your support and finalization of our Mortality Cover for dear beloved Quartermaine. When you lose a horse, the trauma is beyond anything for the family and the thought of having to deal with paperwork rips your heart out. Nothing can replace the loss. Your personal liaison with the attending vets and clinic was beyond expectation, Equipagé really does understand the sensitivity at a time like this. Thank you so much for your caring and sympathy, and know that I will always insure with a company that cares so much. Please give my heartiest thanks to all.

From: Debra Pretorius
Thank you so much, Nicole. I just have to say that, per usual, I have received exemplary service from Equipagé!! With you guys I always get the feeling that you truly care about the horses' well-being, and are supportive of the owner's problems and concerns. With other insurance companies one always feels that all they care about is to avoid payment at all costs. Thank you so much to you, Ingrid and Zelda, for everything.

When my Dressage horse cut his tendon due to a freak accident in the paddock he had to be operated with immediate effect. Equipagé contacted the clinic directly and settled the account with them. The service was swift, efficient and no questions asked. The best part is that the whole process only cost me one phone call and a few emails. They took care of the rest!
Thank you!

From: Caro Sykes
I would like to say that I am so impressed with both you and Equipagé - phenomenal service, in the face of all the negative comments I receive from equine insurers in general. I have also recommended you to another breeder and hope that she gives you a call.

Thank you so much for all the trouble you guys went through to make things easier for us during this difficult time with Rumba. We really appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts.

From: Aretha van Rooyen
I want to really thank you guys for the way you handled everything. I don't think there is anything more traumatic to go through than your precious horse being admitted to hospital and you literally don't know if he is going to pull through or not. I was crying my heart out when I sent the email to ask Equipagé what I need to do if my boy needs to go and have an operation and your response which started with "So sorry to hear about King Max. I hope he is feeling better today." This was the most amazing response ever. It made me realize that I was not dealing with an insurance company, but actually someone who completely understood what I was going through and that this is not just a "claim" but the life of the "love of my life". I cannot thank you enough for your compassion when it was needed the most. I am glad my boy pulled through and forever grateful for your understanding and the awesome service. Thanks again.

Thank you very much to Equipagé and their services, without it I wouldn't have been able to help my boy. BIG THANKS to everyone! This literally saved my boy's life! you guys were so helpful and understanding with the situation and very professional, which I can appreciate.

From: Natasha Lamb
I also want to thank you & Equipagé for your support and excellent service during the past 3 weeks. It is the 1st time I have lost a horse and nothing could have prepared me for the sadness and loss I am experiencing. Martinus was a once-in-a-lifetime horse and he can never be replaced. If I ever I do have the courage to purchase another horse, I will definately make use of Equipagé again.

From: Esme Venter
I've been with Equipagé for a long time. Over all these years Equipagé has been nothing but helpful and responsive. I've obviously done comparative quotes with other insurance companies, but none offer me the great rates and more importantly the excellent customer service. Really - you are top of the pile for sure!

Thanks very much for your great service!

I just wanted to thank you again for your amazing service and swift response with my challenges over the past month. Wow, I must just say - I have been insuring my horses with you guys for probably going on 7 years now and I've thankfully never needed you before - now it's happened so suddenly in the space of 2 months and you guys have been incredible, thank you so much. Your efficiency, kindness and caring attitudes are something very rare in service industries these days and I'm sure it resonates across the board with all the people who love their horses enough to insure them with you.
Date: 22 February 2013
From: Christelle Hicklin
Thank you so much for all your assistance in making this process as easy as possible. I can't thank you enough for helping save the life of a very special horse, he is recovering well. I have included some photos so that you can meet the horse that your company has helped to save.

From: Chardi Potgieter
I must really commend you on the way you dealt with us in this matter. You were extremely efficient, sympathetic and supportive. I wish all companies would deal with their clients in this way. Unfortunately, it had to be such a sad reason for our dealings - but we shall definitely remain clients of yours.

Thank you kindly for settling this. Again, I appreciate your kind words during this difficult time, and your prompt response to settling the mortality cover.

Wow Nicole, that was very fast. Thank you so very much for being so kind and for all your assistance. I will definitely make contact again for my next horse.

From: Nadine Jackson
Ek will oog graag van hierdie geleentheid gebruik maak om julle almal daar by Equipagé te bedank vir die manier wat julle die eis hanteer het vir al julle simpatie en bemoedigende woorde. Dit het vir my gevoel asof julle saam met my rou oor die verlies wat ek gely het en ek kan nie vir jou se wat dit vir my beteken het nie. Dit was nie maar net nog 'n perd wat afgesterf het en 'n eis wat julle moes afhandel nie. Ek sal nooit genoeg woorde he om julle te bedank vir als wat julle vir my gedoen het nie. Ek moet egter eerlik wees en se as ek Charlie kan terug kry sal dit vir my baie beter wees as die geld wat deur die eis uitbetaal gaan word maar so weet ek dat dit nie moontlik is nie.

From: Marthina Wessels
May I thank you again for the professional, ultra efficient service that Equipagé delivers, but also for the incredible empathy and compassion that you show to your Clients in the most tragic of circumstances. I am honestly not sure what I would do without you.

Thank you so much for all your assistance. I really appreciate it.

Thank you so much for all your effort. Both myself and my clients have only received great service from you.

From: Melindi Nel
Thanks so much for your and (Equipagé's) help. Arcadio is doing so much better after his op. Although we now have a long rode to recovery to get through, and at the moment he is spending most time in his stable, he is now walking sound and we can at least hold him outside to graze. To have seen him in so much pain and so incredibly lame was awful. Once again, thank you so much.
Date: 07 August 2012
From: Cindy Rattray
We just want to say a heartfelt thank you for your efforts to help us with this claim - we all didn't realize just how much we still miss her and your support has been appreciated!!
Date: 02 August 2012
From: Dot Robertson
Thank you very much. I feel terrible about this one. I know we all insure for tragedies, but I am horrified that it costs so much for colic, impaction surgery. I was only going to insure for R20,000, but fear made me take the maximum. I have a sister who lost a horse in December last year because it was kicked and had a broken leg. They shot it. Not nice. We are grateful Vuyukasi was spared. She is only 4 and should have at least a few more good years of life. Once again, thank you.
Date: 02 August 2012
From: Charmaine Culverwell
It has been a pleasure dealing with you and Equipagé. Thanks a million times over for all your help and outstanding service. I truly appreciate it.

"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.
