Our horses and ponies are a huge part of our lives and so leave a massive hole when they go. They are all unique and have their own personalities and can never be replaced. Having a memorial stone for your horse can help, especially when placed in an area where your horse liked to be. A pet memorial is particularly helpful for children as it is something tangible which can provide a focus for memories and thoughts.
Running Free horse memorials have been placed in the corner of yards and schools and at the side of fields and paddocks all over the country. Made from natural stone, these rustic and boulder memorials blend in beautifully with the equestrian environment.
The concept of our small family business was started when we lost one of our cats Mu and wanted a pet memorial to commemorate his life. We looked for something that was natural and individual, as a reflection of his personality, and also something that fitted beautifully into a garden setting. We didn’t find it, so we made our own. Mu’s memorial headstone was admired by others and we began to make them for the dogs, cats and horses of our local community. Over time, this demand grew and so did our work volume. We called our business Running Free pet memorials because that is how we like to remember all the pets we have loved and lost. As people who are strongly committed to the well-being and happiness of our animals in life, we think it is important to treat them with a similar respect and dignity in death. Our beautiful and natural stone pet memorials are a perfect fitting tribute to the life of our wonderful animal friends.
Here is what our customers say:
“Absolutely delighted with Rhiannedd’s stone, a lovely choice of very tasteful memorial stones and fantastic service all round”
“Pepper’s stone is absolutely beautiful and a fitting tribute to our amazing pony, thank you for all your help & advice; I cannot recommend you highly enough!”.
As well as for horses and ponies, we make memorial stones for dogs, cats, parrots and other animals too. Our smallest recipient was a hamster called Brambles and our most unusual, a sheep called Clover in the highlands!
Another quote from one of our customers:
“Losing an animal is devastating but at least I have found a beautiful way of remembering her”.
