Horse Drawn Carriage Funerals

I am able to offer very affordable horse-drawn carriages.

The carriages are styled in the Victorian fashion and drawn by either fully liveried, pure bred stallions, often referred to as “Belgian Blacks”, or even two greys to white as they are also known as.

We can provide two heavy horses, Suffolk Punch, a beautiful English breed of draught horse, which are an alternative with carriage or flat trailer.

Options include a lead horse to a motor hearse, two lead horses to a pair pulling the carriage and the lead heavy horse in full beautiful livery.
