Cool horse names

Coming up with cool horse names is so much fun. But there are so many to choose from! And sometimes it is hard to find the right one.

I've asked other horsecrazygirls to share their ideas, and you'll find many here. Be sure to share your favorites in the comments below!

Batteries Not Included

I like this name because it is for an energetic horse. I love riding horses with a lot of energy!

Chocolate Kisses

I love this name! I think it's cute <3


It's cute and country. Perfect for a gelding!

Mr. Opportunity

It's the show name for my chestnut gelding--very unique and he was a HUGE opportunity for me after my first horse had life-threatening surgery (he is doing (he is well!!) I got to start riding him some and just loved him because he was completely different than any horse I had ever ridden and now I show him some (we just won a 3ft hunter class in September!!)

Freedom Fire

I like Freedom Fire as a name because it reveals that its free and it's somewhat temperate. I'm just the kinda person who likes high-spirited horses.


My horses name is "Close To The Stars" and his barn name is "Starsky" (Star-skee) I just think it's a really cute name! Lol!

As A Memory

It is a line from a Country song and I think it goes good for a Stallion. Preferably Australian Brumby Black.

Starenella Banay

I make up these crazy names but this one was really cool in my language (don't ask) it means "Vanilla Day."

Need Help Naming Please
by: Chincia

My dad just bought me a 4 year old Warmblood from Germany (I live in South Africa). He's black and a stallion with 1 sock on his left hind foot and a white face and I really need help naming him please. Something bold and powerful maybe with some sort of storm in it. I'm so excited to get him and I feel so lucky❤️

I am a soon to be POA Pony owner (due to arrive in 10 months) but my problem is for registration purposes I have to have"Gotta" and "Bounce" in the name. Anyone have any ideas? This will be my first horse so I want it to be a good and special name but I'm just stuck!

You can also name your horse after month or time of year like for ex:

March would be a unique name

Ok so i just sold my medium pony (youtube lizzy mccrady and magnum opus and you will see our pony finals trip) and just bought a green chestnut large pony and his show name is the same as another horses at my barn... so i've been trying to come up with some good names for him but want something that is good in the hunter ring and isn't to like kiddish... All i've been able to come up with is:
Freedom fire
Captive heart
Red storm rising
blushing beauty
And i was wondering if you had any ideas for a chestnut horse or if you liked any of the ones that i have come up with... Thanks

My favorite names...
by: Anonymous

My favorite horse name is Leo. The first horse I rode was named that, and he's the best horse ever! He's chestnut with a blaze. I sometimes ride a Paint mare named Omni, which is cool for a horse that's kind of high-spirited like she is. I know a big chestnut, slow and steady, named Big Mack. A few others I like, based on horses I know-- Gracie, Passion, Copper, Toby, Zoey, April, Dakota, Finn, Magic.

Cher Ami
by: sam

I am a soon to be horse owner!!! Very very happy about this. We recently remodeled my room and I have a chalkboard wall in my room now. All I've been doing is writing out names. My personal favorite that I found for a gelding is "Gage" kinda like a 12 gage gun. For a mare it would have to be either "Santana" or "Whiskey". There's a name that I absolutely love and happens to be the tittle of my comment this name could be used for both geldings or mares, "Cher Ami" this name means your friend in another language. I hope this helped with names for some. It has certainly helped me.

Congratulations!!! I hope your new horse is amazing. Do post a picture if you can. :)
