About Horse Urns
Give your equine companion a respectful resting place with a full-size horse urn from Perfect Memorials. Made of solid red oak wood that has been carefully crafted and finished, these urns can accommodate 2,000 cubic inches of remains, which means that they can hold the cremains of a horse that weighed up to 2,000 pounds. Keepsake urns are also available that can hold between 30 and 120 cubic inches of cremains.
Humans and horses have long had a deep bond, with archeological evidence indicating that they may have been domesticated 5,000 years ago or more. Many people who own or work with horses have a deep emotional connection to the animals. Hand-crafted solid wood horse urns are a wonderful way to honor a deceased horse, providing not only storage for the cremains but space for photos, a figurine, and more.
What Are My Horse Urn Options?
When choosing a horse urn from Perfect Memorials, you have several options. All of our full-size urns are made of solid oak, while keepsake urns are made of solid hardwood with the option of an oak, walnut, or maple finish.
You have a choice of figurines to decorate the top of both types of urns. Choose from standing, running, or rearing figures, hand painted to represent the following horse coat colors and breeds:
- Dapple Gray
- Black Mustang
- Brown Mustang
Full-size horse urns are also available without a figurine.
Both full-size and keepsake horse urns can be personalized with an engraved brass nameplate. Because they are larger, a full-size horse urn includes two plates that can hold up to four lines with 25 characters of engraving each. The engraved plate is an optional extra for keepsake urns. Our experienced engravers will review your requested text and lay it out on the plate so that it appears at its best.
Full-size horse urns also include two photo holders that can be attached to the urn either vertically or horizontally. This allows you to add two 4" x 6" photos of the horse, giving you the opportunity to create a loving memorial to your departed animal friend.
Filling and Caring for Your Urn
To fill a full-size horse urn, simply remove the bottom panel and place the bag of cremains inside. It's a good idea to leave the cremains in the bag, if possible, as this can help prevent spills or accidents. You can fill a keepsake urn in the same way with a smaller portion of the ashes.
Because they are made from quality solid wood, caring for a horse urn does not require any special methods. Keep the urn away from moisture and direct sunlight, as this could damage the wood, and dust it regularly with a clean, soft cloth.
Enter in an approximate weight of your loved one before cremation and we will tell you the size needed.

Choosing the right size urn is easy. For every one pound before cremation you will need 1 cubic inch of volume. For example, a loved one weighing 200 pounds will need an urn that is at least 200 cubic inches or larger. Choosing an urn larger then you need is OK.
