To honor the passing of a loved one can take on many forms. What better way can there be than to be carried to the resting place in an ornate hand-made hearse drawn by the noble handsome horse. The horse has served us throughout time in so many forms that he must truly be man’s best friend. “BACK WHEN CARRIAGE RIDES” can furnish additional carriages to accompany the funeral procession if required. The attendants will be properly attired and respectful of the event.
