Your loved one deserves to be commemorated with dignity, and a horse-drawn hearse can provide exactly that. This alternative to the modern automobile hearse is a classic option that signifies honor and grace.
We know this is a difficult time for your family. That’s why our staff will handle every detail of the funeral procession with professionalism and gratitude–it’s our privilege to help memorialize your loved one in a respectful manner.
Transport your loved one to their final resting place in a beautiful white or black glass-enclosed hearse or caisson/buckboard pulled by a Percheron or Belgian horse in black, white, or brown. Our elegant replicas of an 1850s style hearse can accommodate a standard and oversized casket.
Give your loved one a classic and elegant recognition with a horse-drawn hearse or caisson/buckboard for the funeral procession. Contact us for pricing and scheduling information.
Funeral Procession Details
Every horse-drawn carriage service is customized to fit your needs and requests. Our drivers travel at a comfortable walking pace so that mourners of all ages are able to participate in the final procession. Here are a few options and details you can expect from our drivers, horses, and hearse.
- Drivers wear formal attire with a top hat and a dark suit, or a black western cut suit with a black western hat.
- Available for funeral services in Houston, Harris County, and throughout the state of Texas.
- Prior to any event, the horses are bathed, brushed, groomed and combed. Their hooves are inspected and maintained. During the procession, a diaper and a bum bag will be used to catch horse droppings.
This beautiful caisson/buckboard can be used by anyone from military personnel to civilians (ie male or female). We can travel with this caisson/buckboard to any VA Cemetary or any other cemetery in the great state of Texas.
To have your loved one taken to his or her final resting place, please contact us or your funeral home.
