Choosing the perfect horse name is no easy task. Do you name your horse based on pedigree, color, breed or something else? Then, we must consider a barn name vs. a show name. The task of choosing the perfect name for your horse isn’t as easy as one might think.

Don’t worry though, I understand. I have personally named over 200 horses and burros. It’s hard to come up with names and it doesn’t get easier when you have more animals, especially if you don’t want to reuse your favorites.

Sometimes, I find names that are awesome but don’t fit the particular horse I am looking for. The good news, this blog is a great reason to compile lists of awesome horse names which you can now take advantage of!

Without further adieu, here are my best horse name lists!
