The horse cremation process

At Patch & Purr, our purpose-built cremator ensures that your beloved horse will be cremated complete and individually.  We can pick up and return your horse from your home, vet or agistment centre*. Our unique Pet Tracker 360 tag provided to every pet in our care, ensures that the ashes you receive are those of your horse and only your horse.

We guarantee full transparency in every part of the horse cremation process.

Why choose horse cremation?

Many horse owners don't have the luxury of being able to keep their horse on the same property they live on and are often not able to lay them to rest at the place where they have homed them. This is where horse cremation provides a respectful way to honour and farewell your horse.
