It’s never easy to deal with the loss of a loved one, which is why we do the best we can for them before we finally lay them to rest forever. There are different kinds of rituals performed in different parts of the world to celebrate and commemorate the dead, some driven by religious inclinations and others by cultural but they all have one thing in common – they want to give their dearly departed a send-off they deserve.
A dignified funeral follows a dress code where everyone wears black – the colour of mourning. The family and friends of the departed stand the closest to the funeral coffin before it is buried but before that happens, the dearly departed must be ushered towards their final resting place in an equally dignified fashion and there’s no better way to do this than to have them carried on a horse driven carriage. Funeral carriages are an age old tradition that have withstood the test of time even to this day, where we have countless other methods of having our departed loved ones carried to their graves. You can learn more and check out funeral horse and carriage prices.
You get to choose how your loved one is ushered to the burial ceremony thanks to all the options you have available to you when it comes to picking a carriage out. You can even decide whether you want white horses or black ones to draw the carriage, even though traditionally black horses are always preferred. The coachmen themselves also dress elegantly for the occasion in respects to the departed. If you’re looking for a traditional but memorable farewell for your departed loved one, then this age old traditional method is the best option.
