CN Taylor Consulting is owned and operated by Cherry Taylor and Melanie Priscott. They pride themselves on providing quality Bloodstock Insurance cover and hassle free claims. Cherry and Melanie recognise each client has individual needs so can customise Insurance plans to suit each profile.

Cherry Taylor

Cherry began her career in Insurance working in the Fire and General Insurance sector. With a father as a horse trainer, it was a natural progression to move on to Bloodstock Insurance. At the age of 27 she was the NZ manager for Logans, and in 1995 became the Asia/Pacific Manager and Director of Jardines. In 2003, realising there was a gap in the market, Cherry established CN Taylor Consulting. Insurance companies were providing set, generalised plans that did not suit everyone’s situation. CN Taylor Consulting was created as a boutique Insurance agent to provide personalised plans to elite clients.

Melanie Prscott

Melanie joined CN Taylor Consulting following a longstanding business relationship and friendship with Cherry. Melanie has extensive experience in Bloodstock Insurance, having worked at both Logans and Jardines. Melanie also brings a practical knowledge to the business, having travelled with race horses to Australia for her father, trainer Robert Priscott and has worked in Amercia. Melanie took time off from the Insurance sector to have a family, and was convinced to return by Cherry who saw her as an asset to the CN Taylor Consulting team. She now operates in partnership with Cherry.

I have been insuring my bloodstock with Cherry and Melanie for the last 6 years. Together they make a very professional, service based outfit with unquestioned high integrity. I feel I'm dealing with the best and will continue to do so. I can recommend them without hesitation.

CN Taylor Consulting has advised Trelawney Stud and their clients on their equine insurance needs for over 10 years and provides us with great product advice, a very clear understanding on the variety of different insurance covers we have. Both Cherry and Mel are great to deal with, provide a very efficient service, extremely competitive rates and a fantastic Underwriter who has a very good knowledge of our industry. I'm very happy to recommend their services.
