Petplan Equine survey reveals horses come first ahead of partners

When leading specialist equine insurer, Petplan Equine asked visitors to their Facebook page for feedback to the question: ‘Who comes first, your horse or your partner?’ it received some revealing information about the value of owners’ relationships with their horses.

According to the company, the answer was a resounding 90% in favour of their horse ahead of their human partner, with a number also putting their dog and/or cat ahead of their other half.

Among the comments received were:

"Horse – that’s why I don’t have a partner anymore!"

"Horse! Men are cheaper to replace."

"The horse doesn’t abandon me for the pub."

"The horse of course – the partner should be able to look after himself."

Petplan Equine’s head of marketing, Isabella von Mesterhazy, says: "I’m sure that there are many people who have long suspected they are behind their other half’s horse in the pecking order and this exercise has certainly proved that. On the plus side, it’s lovely to see how highly valued many of our horses are."
