Our equine services include a standard service, as well as a deluxe service. Deluxe services include a cremains burial lot in our Horseshoe Gardens, a granite marker with the horse's name and dates of birth and death, and can include other custom design options if you wish.
From start to finish, our trained and experience staff counselors are here to accommodate your specific needs. We offer compassionate dignified removal services utilizing our customized equine vehicle. And while most owners prefer that we come to their farm for removal, some choose to bring their beloved friend to us. A phone call is all that is required.
