Whether American Miniature Horse or Shire Horse, equines are loyal companions for many people, too, and, just like our smaller pets, deserve a dignified last journey. TThe procedure for a horse cremation is a little different than for smaller pets, especially the transport is more difficult. Therefore, many of our pet cremation colleagues work together with special equine crematories, who take care of the equine collections for us pet cremation offices.
If you already know that your horse will have to be euthanized, it is best to contact us ahed of time. There are some legal regulations for equidae that must be observed, and we will of course support you with them. Call us on 0173 9811416. We are happy to assist you in a personal conversation.
Together with our partner Horsia we will take care of all the formalities for you, especially with the veterinary offices. If your horse died, it will be picked up in specially made trailers as fast as possible. Usually within 24 hours. Your horse is then taken directly to the equine crematory and cremated there. It is important that you have your equine passport available and that your vet certifies on the application form (you will receive from us), that your horse has not been infected with or has died of any infectious disease. The necessary veterinary approval must be available before the transport can take place. The costs for the approval notice will be invoiced to you directly by the responsible veterinary office. Please keep in mind that most veterinary offices in Germany are closed in the evenings, on weekends and on public holidays.
We can offer this service nationwide throughout Germany, but as with pet cremations, personal contact is important to us. In the Paderborn district as well as outside of it, such as Bielefeld, Brilon, Bueren, Delbrueck, Geseke, Guetersloh, Lichtenau, Lippstadt, Soest, Stukenbrock and Warburg, we can be there with you when your horse is picked up if you wish.
Of course, your horse will not be split before, as you can read in some dubious internet forums. If you choose an individual cremation we will hand over the ashes to you in a simple cardboard box or an urn of your choice. If you decide to have the communal cremation for your horse, the ashes remain in the equine crematory and are scattered in a meadow.
With horses, too, cost transparency is important to us! Our service, the quotation and the handling of all formalities with the authorities and the horse crematory are of course included.
The cremation costs are calculated according to size*:

In addition, there are always additional costs such as for the collection and transfer, processing and shipping of the ash and currently energy surcharges (updated 09.2023: 150.00 €). Unfortunately, there is not just a flat rate. Transport costs, for example, always depend on the distance (e.g. Paderborn area: 550.00 €) and energy costs are updated daily.
