HORSE Sport Ireland today (Tuesday) announced the launch of its exclusive new HSI Club Membership which offers different levels of personal accident and public liability insurance over.
By becoming a HSI Club member, members will become part of an exciting new Irish equestrian community, with exclusive access to a range of benefits including Personal Accident and Public Liability insurance cover, discount offers with major equestrian brands, as well as exclusive E-news to keep you up-to-date with key equestrian issues.
With four membership options available, there is something for everyone, whether you own a horse or not, and the first 100 members to join up will receive a Horse Sport Ireland Goodie Bag in the new year.
Changes post Brexit have meant that residents of the Republic of Ireland can no longer avail of Public Liability and Personal Accident Insurance which was previously available through UK-based equestrian membership organisations, such as the British Horse Society.
In a statement today, Horse Sport Ireland said that their new HSI Club Membership 'offers an excellent solution for the Irish equestrian community giving peace of mind with essential insurance cover and exciting member benefits'.
Backed by Allianz
The statement continued: "Horse Sport Ireland is delighted to partner with Allianz who are a global provider based in Ireland. HSI Club Members will be covered by market-leading public liability insurance up to €6.5 million and personal accident insurance at three optional levels. This cover will allow members to undertake an equestrian activity of their choice.''
Gold, Silver and Bronze membership levels
HSI Club Gold Membership includes €80,000 Personal Accident cover, and personal liability for your first horse up to €6.5 million. Options are available to insure more than one horse as well as adding additional family members.
HSI Club Silver Membership includes €50,000 Personal Accident cover, and personal liability for your first horse up to €6.5 million. Options are available to insure more than one horse as well as adding additional family members.
HSI Club Bronze Membership includes €20,000 Personal Accident cover, and personal liability for your first horse up to €6.5 million. Options are available to insure more than one horse as well as adding additional family members.
HSI Club Supporter Membership (Gold, Silver or Bronze) is for those who love equestrian but do not own their own horse but borrow horses from time to time. For the ultimate peace of mind, this membership serves to cover members who do not have horses within their ownership.
There is also an option for Gold, Silver and Bronze members to add another horse to your membership policy (up to a maximum of six horses covered in any one membership) and to add a riding of other horses public liability extension.
Acting CEO of Horse Sport Ireland, Joe Reynolds said: "I am delighted we are in a position to launch the HSI Club as a major strategic initiative for Horse Sport Ireland and it is a high point for me as I come to the end of my time as CEO. I have worked on this project for the last 12 months along with a small group in HSI, Avalon Everett, Head of Sport, Legal & Governance and John Moran, Head of Finance, have been instrumental and we are lucky to have had the benefit of expert assistance from Eamonn Egan. Eamonn, as many people will know, heads up Lloyds Insurance in Ireland and is the chair of the HSI Audit and Risk Committee, involved in IPC and a keen hunting enthusiast. The benefits to Club members will grow over the next few months but undoubtedly Allianz Insurance for members will be a key attraction."
