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.

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. She is doing a lot better thank goodness we could give her the care she needed thanks to Equipagé!! I have told everyone I know to get insured with you because of how things have been dealt with, it made all the difference.

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!

From: Adele Coetzee
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.

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.

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.

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.

Thank you so much for all your help, support and immediate attention to this matter. It is much appreciated.....
We don't find great service like yours often these days!!!!

From: Pauline Botha-Germishuys
Thank you so much! Yes my big boy Fire Emblem is doing awesome thanx and is 100% sound and am busy bringing him back really slowly into work started last week by just walking him for 15 min and now we are moving the time up to 25 min walking and he is loving it! Had to laugh yesterday as he had is little walk out in the morning and in the afternoon around 4 pm my instructor and I couldn't believe it he was busy cantering around his big paddock saying to me this is a work out and how it's done not the little walk u made me do haha! Have to say it made my heart so happy to see him so happy and sound and healthy. But we will be taking it slow and easy as I do not rush things and he must come back into work in his own time even if it takes months there is no rush Fire Emblem is my life and he means the world to me and I truly am so blessed and grateful for everyone's help in helping him have a second chance in life and mend!

Thanx again to u and the Equipage team for everything! I am truly grateful and will definitely spread the word in how awesome u guys are and promote u to my horsy friends.

That is fantastic! Thanks so much for your efficiency. Really appreciate it, you have made the experience - particularly at times when it was quite traumatic – a pleasure to handle.

From: Felicity Hudson
Thank you to both you and Equipagé for the way the whole settlement claim was handled.
It has been an extremely difficult and emotional time for me and you have allowed both Flight and I time. I really believed that Flight would improve in the six months and tried all sorts of electomagnetic, homeopathic, massage treatments etc, over and above the medical treatment he received. I am therefore grateful for the understanding and at the same time sad for all of us (Flight, Equipage and me) as we have all been negatively effected.
I am however very thankful for the settlement amount, as I certainly would not even have been able to have contemplated the thought of owning another jumping horse at this stage. I am certainly going to take my time though, as Flight and I put a lot of hours and effort into our sport......
Thank you once again Nicole and Equipagé - I certainly am impressed with your professionalism.

I just want to thank you and your company for the efficient and sympathetic way you have handled the whole matter of my horse's sudden illness and death. It will be a privilege to continue to do my future insurance with you.

From: Arthur Johnson
Dear Nicole, Ingrid and the Equipage’ team,
I can not thank you enough for your help in this case. Everything was so emotional. You guys really are amazing! Please could you send me the information for 2 more horses that I would like to move to Equipage’. You can be sure that I will be an ambassador for Equipage’ for many years to come.

Thank you so much for your prompt and kind service after the death of our daughter’s horse, The Corinthian. It was a sudden and tragic loss, completely unexpected.
Each year renewing the subscription is one of those things on the to do list – a bit of a bother when you are busy. Yesterday, I was so relieved that I had taken the time and made sure he remained insured. Economic times change – what I was able to do in 2008 is not be possible now. Your prompt pay-out has meant that our daughter can continue with her riding career. We are so very grateful.
I would strongly recommend more riders consider insuring their beloved horses. I am more than happy to assist with the promotion of Equipage.

Thank you for being such a supportive insurance company, I was not expecting it and you have just been brilliant. I will certainly recommend no other insurance company but you.

Thank you very much for your help with everything and the super-efficient service.

From: Karin Zachariasen
Thanks for all your time & energy during this stressful time. At least I knew that I could do the best for him, given the circumstances. Art's doing very well now & regaining his weight & becoming accustomed, if unwillingly, to his new diet, though he certainly approves of the lucerne over icky teff! You've helped me regain my confidence in horse insurance with all your help.

"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.
