Horse Drawn Funerals

“Timeless elegance, heartfelt journeys...”

The peace and tranquility of a horse-drawn hearse is beautiful and touching way to have your loved one taken to their final resting place. At Carriage Limousine Service, we are committed to providing extraordinary transportation services to help celebrate the life of extraordinary people.

Whether you are planning a small, private service or a large one, our majestic horse-drawn funeral coach—led by our beautiful and strong Percheron draft horses—is a regal, Victorian-inspired vehicle designed to carefully carry your loved one in style and with grace. Or you may opt for our one of a kind Caisson style hearse (an open air style hearse...used during a lot of Presidential funerals). While most families choose to use a horse-drawn hearse to transport their loved one through the cemetery to the gravesite, we can also arrange for a funeral coach to take your dearly departed from either (depending on distance):

  • The funeral home to the church
  • The funeral home to the cemetery
  • The church to the cemetery

Carriage Limousine Service - Horse Drawn Carriages: Our horse drawn funeral coach during a funeral in East Liverpool, OH

As with all of our horse-drawn carriage packages, you can expect friendly and professional service from a coachman dressed formally in a tuxedo and top hat, and horses may be decorated in whichever color you prefer, including the funeral standard of white/black/silver.

Our beautiful and gentle white Percheron draft horses bring peace and grace to your loved one’s funeral procession. For military funerals, we also offer the option of having a caparisoned horse follow the funeral carriage. This practice, believed to date back at least as far as the 13th century but now reserved for army funerals or to honour fallen marine corps officers, includes a lone, riderless horse adorned in ornamental coverings and with boots reversed in the stirrups following the funeral coach.

Our funeral horse and carriage is also available for parades, as are our horses to serve as caparisoned horses.

Our horse-drawn funeral coach is available to the greater tri-state area (most of eastern Ohio, western Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia), including Youngstown, Cleveland, Akron/Canton, Pittsburgh, Wheeling and beyond. Contact us today and let us arrange a final journey fitting for your loved one.
