What to Do When Your Horse Has Passed

The loss of an equine companion can be difficult, but it is important to respect their body and life with prompt action. Just Passing provides horse burial services that are available around the clock. We have several trailers equipped with winches, and our staff members have the expertise to load them safely and respectfully. We bury all horses in permitted locations at landfills in Calgary or Edmonton. If you wish to bury your horse on your property, you can find the provincial regulations at this link.
