More About Our Services
Contacting a reputable company such as Resting Horses ensures that the people assisting will follow a sensitive approach to dealing with your loss and your animal’s final needs. There are upsetting stories that surround how horses are disposed of, but it doesn’t have to be distressing. If your horse is collected by Resting Horses who always act with care and understanding, you will be assured that you are performing a fitting farewell and service to your much-loved friend.
We appreciate that saying goodbye to your equine friend may not be planned, and therefore operate a service that can accommodate out of hours and emergency collections. Based in Essex, we also cover London, Hertfordshire, Cambridge, Bedfordshire, Kent & Suffolk. We are close to the M25, M11 & A12 so we have prompt access to major routes.
The Resting Horses team will explain the full procedure, the options available to you and the full costs involved. We can honestly reassure you that your horse will be cremated in it’s entirety, and that no animals from our premises ever go to the meat trade or for ‘disposal/rendering’. Resting Horses specialise in cremations only.
Our comprehensive service includes many options for you to choose from, including:
Personal contact with your veterinary surgery
Professional preparation of ashes for collection or delivery
Euthanasia can take place in our private meadows or on collection site
Seven days / 24 hours collection service (provided it is safe to do so)
Willow Basket included as standard, Handmade Beech Casket available
Collection Vehicle Our collection vehicle has been designed to the exact specifications of the Resting Horses staff. Our staff have many years of experience in collecting animals and have therefore developed their vehicle to cater exactly for your needs and any eventualities.
The Vehicle inventory includes:
Veterinary Post-mortem facilities
Wide load access at the rear
Recovery mat (on request)
Remote control wireless winch

At Resting Horses we always work to the highest standards, therefore we conform and uphold all the latest licenses and permits from DEFRA, Environmental Agency and the Local Authority.

Can’t thank these people enough for their caring and compassion when my Georgie passed away last week. She passed away at home and I have been treated with nothing but respect and kindness from the first phone call, to collection, communication about choice of urn, and return of her ashes. The urn is beautiful and the poem included was a lovely touch. Thank you x... See MoreSee Less
