One of the most unique features at Schepp is the availability of using an old-fashioned horse and buggy as a hearse. The horse and carriage adds a bit of a unique and intimate feel to the service. This can be a neat way to honor your loved one if they were a major historian buff or they were just a fan of classic items.
We have restored an authentic 19th century horse-drawn hearse complete with oil-burning coach lamps. The interior has been fitted to carry modern, normal sized caskets. The hearse may be used at no additional charge, however local stables charge for the use of their horses.
The horses are only allowed to travel 4 miles or less from the service location. If the cemetery is located more than 4 miles away, a motorized hearse can transport the casket to the cemetery and then the casket can be transferred to a horse-drawn hearse at the cemetery entrance. Then the guests can walk behind the horse-drawn hearse on route to the actual gravesite/burial plot. Additionally, the horse-drawn carriage may be available for transporting the family members. Please note that weather conditions may limit the use of the carriage.
