Horse-drawn funerals may have to end at Miramar

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A local charity that provides touching and dignified horse-drawn carriage rides for the caskets of our fallen military heroes is struggling to continue its free service.

The group Final Honor is running out of funds, and is now calling on the community and corporate sponsors to stand behind their heartfelt cause.

Shelter, food, insurance and transportation costs total about $950 each time they load up their trailer for the trek from Julian to Miramar.

For corporate sponsorship, Final Honors says it can place your logo on the trailer they use. They say it gets a lot of miles and passes through a lot of places.

Final Honor is also grateful for tax-deductible donations from individuals, as well.

Watch the News 8 video report for the full story.

Some of the footage in this video story was shot using a GoPro camera.
