Santana

(Dee, USA)
I chose this name because it makes me think of a wild untamed stallion and On the TV show Texas Ranger, Chuck Norris rode a wild stallion by the name of Santana.

Apollo

(RayRay, Canada)
I chose this name because it is really interesting. It comes from ancient Greece.

Odyssey

(Zoe, USA)
My favorite horse name is Odyssey because it is very different and sounds so beautiful. It is the perfect name for a beautiful graceful horse. Not only does it sound beautiful but it reminds me of a strong horse. It would make my day to own or ride a horse named Odyssey. I think it is the perfect name for almost any horse.

Dreamer

(Akoiya, America)
I think it's a very graceful name for a horse.

Spirit

(Alyssa, Pennsylvania)
It is a name that can describe a horse or remind people that horses have spirit in them no matter what and it won't go away.

Flicka

(Laura)
It's a classic name. I used to lease a horse named Flicka and she was the best thing ever.

Armani

(Georgia, Wisconsin)
My horse is a French Thoroughbred and Armani is just a cool name that happens to be a French designer.

Bucephalus

(Riley, FL)
It was a Greek king's favorite horse. Bucephalus was his fastest, strongest, and bravest horse. He named a city after him - the great, old city of Bucephalus.

Black Beauty

(Morgan, Delaware)
I want a young black Arabian mare so I don't see her die and I also always wanted an Appaloosa. I love the color black that's why I like black beauty for a horse name.

Misty

(Rhiannon, USA)
After reading the book "Misty of Chincoteague" a couple years ago, the name Misty has been one of my favorite horse names. I would love to get a Chincoteague pony and name her Misty. I highly recommend the name to anyone who has a flaxen chestnut, or any other light colored horse. And I also recommend the book! ;)

Seabiscuit

(Christina, USA)
He was a little horse and he made a big name for himself!

Frankel
by: Eve

Frankel is the fastest race horse alive right now. I think it's a cute name for a bay (male).

Also for a mare, a good name could be Black Caviar who is also an unbeaten mare racehorse at this time.

My lesson trainer is buying me and her a horse (it's a bay male) and I think I might rename him Frankel. ARE THERE ANY OTHER GOOD BAY GELDING NAMES???

The Bonanza Horses
by: A Horse Girl

Some horse names that I really like are the horses from Bonanza the buckskin Buck, then there is Sport, Chub the Black, and Little Joe's horse Cochise.

Then later in the series Sport and the actor with him left then a new character came which was Candy.

Now they never named the horse, but I feel a good name would be Lady if it was a mare, and Bullet if it was a stallion.
