If your horse passes in his stable or in his paddock, we can provide transport from this location to Westerhout Horse Crematorium for you. If you then wish to say goodbye to your horse, we can provide that option with our special farewell space, which is liberally covered in straw.
If you choose to have your horse put to sleep, you can avail of our spacious and peaceful euthanasia corral. If you wish, we can provide the services of a vet for your horse. You may of course also ask your own vet to be there.
Westerhout Horse Crematorium gives you the chance to bid your horse farewell with dignity. Any additional or special wishes concerning the farewell can be provided in consultation.
Westerhout Horse Crematorium came about out of love for the horse. Our crematorium is therefore also completely equipped to strengthen the bond between human and horse, also in the final phase of life.

The foundation of Westerhout Horse Crematorium came about from love of the horse. Our crematorium is therefore also completely equipped to strengthen the bond between human and horse, also in the final phase of life.
Various natural materials were used in the construction of the first crematorium in the Netherlands exclusively for horses. This has created an atmosphere of robustness and peace, highlighted by its location on the beautiful Westerhout estate. The crematorium has various attractive areas, including two stables, a euthanasia space, a farewell room and an intimate coffee room. There is also plenty of parking available, naturally also for horse carriers and horseboxes.
Developments in the market have motivated us to explain the difference between the Westerhout Horse Crematorium and other crematoria in the Netherlands.
Westerhout Horse Crematorium is the only horse crematorium in Europe that has the facilities to cater for the proper and dignified cremation of a horse.
The horses are cremated in a crematorium where service to, respect for and personal attention to the owner are our highest priorities. The horses are cremated intact.
We can offer this dignified form of service because we have had a cremation oven specially developed for horses. Our furnace has a floor area of 3 by 5 metres and an access door of 2.5 metres.
Even the largest horse, a Shire, can be placed in our furnace lying down. The deceased is carried into the furnace on a bier. The horse is therefore not pulled or pushed.
