We offer a wide range of insurance products to meet your needs. We work almost exclusively with "A" rated and admitted companies to provide you with the most comprehensive package for your situation.
Cheval Insurance Services, Inc. specializes in Equestrian, Sports & Recreational insurance. We understand the particular needs of the horse-sporting enthusiast through our long time experience in the care, training and competing of horses.
Holly J. Lopes, our founder, started riding at age nine and is an accomplished Dressage rider with many awards. It was this continuing involvement in horses, which led Holly to seek a career in the horse world.
Holly has been taking care of the insurance needs of the Equestrian community since 1992, eventually forming her own insurance agency, Cheval Insurance Services, Inc., to better serve the needs of this unique insurance field. Her knowledge of the horse industry permeates our entire organization to your benefit. Holly is highly respected in the insurance community often providing consultation to other professionals in the insurance and legal fields.
Cheval Insurance Services, Inc. takes a well-rounded approach to protect your interests from a risk management standpoint. We determine what potential exposures to loss you have and then work with you to devise a program that mitigates or transfers as much risk as possible. This is accomplished through education of the client, risk management surveys & inspections, and insurance. When you are done, you know how you are protected and why.
Cheval Insurance Services, Inc. has continued to grow and, in doing so, is able to provide insurance for many types of sporting events and attractions, campgrounds, recreational sporting programs, amateur and school sports, and various competitions.
Risk Management Surveys & Inspections
A prudent business owner will work to minimize his risk of loss in every area they can. This includes issues such as building and equipment maintenance, safety rules & regulations, premises safety and maintenance, proper use of releases and agreements, and more. We will be happy to provide on site risk management inspections (Southern California only) and/or conduct risk management surveys to allow you to optimize your operation and minimize your risk of loss. We are also happy to provide suggested releases & agreements suitable for boarding, training, lessons, clinics, sales, leasing and rentals of horses. Disclaimer: This is not to be construed as providing legal advice as we are not attorneys. We advise you to double check everything for optimum legality with your own counsel in your own state.
We would be happy to arrange to have an agent come and speak to a club, group of students, or other organization about specific insurance issues of your choice or for general Q&A about equestrian and sports insurance. If you are somewhat close to our Fullerton, California location, an in person visit can be arranged with advance notice. If you are farther away, a speakerphone call can be arranged on our 800 number.
