The history of Xcellent Horse Insurance b.v. began in Zwolle a hundred years ago. On 7 October 1910, veterinary surgeon Gerrit Tervoert established the company under the name “Zwolsche Paarden en Veeverzekeringsmaatschappij N.V.” This insurer became well known under the name "Zwollmij" and was located in Zwolle for the few first decades of its existence. The company has been taken over on a regular basis in the intervening one hundred years and its name has changed several times.

Since 2005 it has operated on the market under the name Hippo Zorg. In January 2007 ownership of Hippo Zorg passed to W.A. Hienfeld B.V. in Amsterdam. This is a family business, established in 1874 and specialising in niche products, a focus with which horse insurance dovetails well. in 2014 the name has been changed to: Xcellent Horse Insurance b.v.
