Who We Are?
The team here at Harbin is comprised of horse people who are committed to the protect client’s finances and always act in best interest of the horse. Part of effectively achieving that standard of excellence in caring for the horse is providing generous coverage for common injuries and illnesses and extending treatment contributions, allowing us to contribute to the array of treatments horses often require and cover what other companies exclude.
Meet the Team
At The Harbin Agency, we’re not just equine and farm insurance agents…we’re farm owners and horse people ourselves. We understand the unique challenges that come with running a farm, owning livestock, and showing horses. Our agency’s principal, Marty Harbin grew up around cattle and horses and was a champion barrel-racer in his younger days! Marty and his family (and their horses and cows) live on a 50 acre farm in Tyrone, GA. Bill Harris, our farms and equine insurance account executive, is the proud father of three horse-loving daughters who have ridden competitively. So you can depend on us to know and serve your needs just as we would serve our own.
