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.

Personal contact with your veterinary surgery
Professional preparation of ashes for collection or delivery

Our kitten Gizmo was attacked by a fox 3 days before Christmas and sadly passed away at the vets not in a very nice state. Both Kew Vets in Harlow and Wood Farm were sensitive, kind and very professional. We paid for a personal cremation and also a paw print keepsake which we have received today. The ashes, certificate and boxed paw impression all beautifully packaged and couldn’t stop crying. Thank you so much for taking care of our little Gizmo. ��... See MoreSee Less
