Choosing a Powerful Horse Cremation Urn
Beauty and Power
There's a reason vehicle manufacturers use the term horsepower to describe an engine's capabilities. Horses have long represented power and beauty, not only for their size and shape, but also for their sheer strength. Watching a horse gallop across a field, listening to the thundering hooves, we can't help but feel moved.
If your loved one cared for and admired horses, choosing a majestic horse urn for their memorial could prove very meaningful.
There are those for whom horses are much more than a hobby. They are a lifestyle. These people wake up to barn chores and go to bed only after late-night barn check. Their closets are full of Wellington boots, and their clothes dryers are tumbling a load of polo wraps. Weekdays are for training, while weekends are for horse shows or trail rides.
There's not a better way to honor someone who lived that equestrian life than by choosing a majestic horse urn for their memorial.
Fame and Glory
From Bucephalus to Trigger to Mr. Ed to Secretariat, there are some horses so special they deserve to be remembered with pomp and circumstance.
- Over time, horses have won fame and glory by the following means:
- Dignifying their riders in famous battles
- Winning the Triple Crown or other prestigious races
- Being owned by famous dignitaries or statesmen
- "Acting" on TV or the silver screen
For those who have never bonded with a horse, it may be easy to assume that horses are simply a way for people to win honor and glory for themselves, and yet, as any "horse person" will tell you, nothing could be further from the truth.
The horse. Here is nobility without conceit, friendship without envy, beauty without vanity. A willing servant, yet never a slave." (Ronald Duncan)
Horses aren't simply a means to an end. For many people, horses are an end in themselves.
While there are many who believe dogs are man's best friend, there are others for whom horses are lifelong companions.
In fact, horses are some of the most loyal animals you will ever encounter. But why is this? Well, a larger part of it has to do with the fact that they have great memory. When you befriend a horse, they will remember you for the long haul. (Deer Creek Stables)
Horses recognize faces and bond with humans in a way that deepens over time. Since horses can live for over three decades, they make loving lifelong companions.
Loving horses for that many years can prove painful, however, when the time comes to say goodbye. The same can be said of our human relationships. When we lose a lifelong friend or close loved one, we will suffer in deep and meaningful ways.
Grief and Remembrance
Losing a loved one creates a void that no one else will ever fill.
In our times of grief, we often wrestle with knowing how best to express how much the ones we have lost mean to us. One good response is to channel your grief into symbolism. By choosing a commemorative urn that represents something your loved one held dear, you're able to honor them in a special way. If your loved one cared about horses, a majestic horse urn could be the perfect choice.
