Specializing in Equine & Farm Related Coverages
About Equine Insurance
With over 40 years of industry experience, assisting clients with their equine and farm-related insurance needs, Equine Insurance, a division of Parker General Insurance, is a leading agency in the Western United States.
Parker General Insurance began in 1964 as an independent agency in Fresno, California, and has since been recognized throughout the industry for its knowledge of the marketplace and superior customer service. In 1993 Parker General purchased Equine Insurance, a small equine agency and hired Donna Chopp to manage the Equine division. This agency has since grown through a continued philosophy of seeking and hiring knowledgeable, resourceful employees, always putting the customers needs first. We have always felt that it was necessary to partner or align ourselves with the strongest and most competitive insurance companies, providing the best possible pricing and service.
We take pride in giving back to the industry we love through rider and show sponsorship and a commitment to excellence each and every day. As evidence of Equine’s outstanding reputation, we have been selected by numerous nationwide equestrian organizations, farms, trainers and Olympic Team Members as their sole insurance provider and hope you too will consider adding us to your team.
Equine’s staff takes pride in providing our customers with the best insurance protection possible, at an affordable price. We feel that every client deserves prompt, personal, and professional service. Our decades of insurance experience, paired with over 40 years of expertise in the livestock industry are proof of that.
