Do you need to arrange with an insurence in Iceland?

vis-agria_logo

Do you have a horse in Iceland which needs to be insured? We offer good prices and good service.
Feel free to contact us and we will assist you with the diffrent kind of insurences from V√ćS-Agria.
Here we have an example of a happy client:

Katrin Sheehan, Creekside Farm, Georgia, USA:

‚ÄúI have never insured any of my horses before as there was no affordable insurance available and my horses had more emotional value than financial.Since I found a good stallion through Sandra Marin she pointed VIS-Agria out to me. At first I was sceptical but after getting familiar with the different programs it was a no-brainer to me. Now I have my first prize stallions Erpur-Sn√¶r fr√° Efsta-Dal 2 (e: Svartur fr√° Unal√¶k) and Sikill fr√° Sper√įli (e: Sveinn-Hervar fr√° √ě√ļfu) insured and I am sure to be insuring other horses when I buy them. It is great to know that your financial investment is secured through a reputable company and puts me at ease to enjoy all the good times I want to have with my horses.¬† Hopefully they all will live healthy and happy lifes‚ÄĚ.
