Is it compulsory to insure a horse trailer?

To transport your horse as safely as possible over a longer distance, a horse trailer is a godsend. In principle, it is not compulsory in the Netherlands to insure a horse trailer separately. If the horse trailer is connected to the car, the trailer falls under the WA car insurance. With a WA-insurance, damage that you cause with the horse trailer to others will be compensated. Damage to your own horse trailer is not covered by the car insurance and will therefore not be compensated. In this case it does not matter whether you have a WA-, limited-casco- or all-risk insurance. Only damage to (vehicles of) others is compensated.

If the horse trailer gets damaged unexpectedly and you do not want to have to pay the costs yourself, then it is wise to insure the horse trailer. This can be done with a trailer insurance. The amount of money to replace damage to a horse trailer can be very high, especially when it concerns a new trailer.

Can I insure a horse trailer with a trailer insurance policy?

To insure your horse trailer against damage and theft, you can purchase trailer insurance. At you can easily compare different insurers. Also pay attention to the conditions. These may differ from one company to another. For example, not every insurance company covers it if the horse itself damages the trailer. If you have found a suitable insurance, you can take out an insurance policy directly online.

What driving licence do I need for a horse trailer?

To drive a car with a horse trailer behind it, you usually need driving licence BE. This depends on the weight of the trailer and the horse. Driving licence B alone is then not enough. If you do go on the road with a horse trailer without a BE driving licence, the coverage of the car and horse trailer insurance will be void. You then drive around without a valid driving licence and you also risk a fine. So before you take a horse trailer on the road, check which driving licence is required.

What is insured with a trailer insurance?

What is covered under the trailer insurance may differ per insurance company. For a horse trailer you take out a trailer insurance where you indicate that it concerns a horse trailer. The coverage usually includes:

  • Theft
  • Fire
  • Damage due to own fault
  • Vandalism
  • Natural disaster

The specific coverages that apply differ from insurer to insurer and can be found in the relevant policy conditions.
